2017 Spring Convocation
Yesterday’s convocation ceremony was a wonderful event! We had a very nice turnout of History faculty to celebrate our students' success and we got to hear an inspiring convocation address by honorary doctorate recipient Senator Chantal Petitclerc. And I had my picture taken with four of our graduating class: Mab Coates-Davies, Cassandra Marsillo, Olivier Paré, and Althea Thompson.
And on behalf of the Department, I want to offer the heartiest of congratulations to our award winners:
Lachlan MacKinnon – winner of the Governor General’s Gold Medal Prize and Concordia University Distinguished Doctoral Dissertation Prize (in Fine Arts, Humanities and Social Science Programs);
Jason Butters – winner of The Edward Eastman McCullough MA History Award (best History MA thesis);
Clara Cariou – who was awarded The Malone Medal (awarded to the undergraduate graduating student (Spring Ceremonies) whose efforts and dedication best exemplify the values of the University within the internal Concordia Community);
Olivier Paré – winner of The Martin Lewis Memorial Book Prize in History (highest ranked History undergraduate).
These and all our graduates have done us proud!
Dr. Peter Gossage
