Teckchandani Recipient of University Prize in KHS

It is with great pleasure to acknowledge Taylor Teckchandani as the most deserving student for the University Prize in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies.  Taylor’s program of study is the Bachelor of Kinesiology Honours, majoring in Human Kinetics, graduating with a cumulative grade point average of 84.72%, High Honours.  He was named to the Dean’s List 2018 winter and fall.   Taylor received the Academic All Canadian Scholarship during the Fall 2016, Fall 2017 as well as Winter 2017.  Mr. Teckchandani was the recipient of the 2019 Kinesiology and Health Studies Distinguished Undergraduate Award and was the University of Regina Undergraduate Research Award recipient, Spring Summer 2019.

During his academic career at the University of Regina, he consistently distinguished himself from his peers, which is reflected in his overall academic performance.  In particular, his performance over the course of his Honours project has been exceptional, demonstrating very keen intellect, along with exceptional writing and presentation skills that far exceed what would be expected from an undergraduate student.                      

In additional to his academic and professional achievements, Taylor has made important contributions during his undergraduate career making a significant impact to the University and wider community.  Specifically, he has advocated for and obtained funding from local community and businesses.  Youth sport programs organized and hosted by the University, the exercise and rehabilitation equipment for the University’s Dr. Paul Schwann Applied Health & Research Centre and exercise and rehabilitation equipment for First Steps Wellness Centre have benefited from Taylor’s driven ambition. 

“As one who serves”, the University of Regina’s motto, has been and will continue to be exemplified by this exceptional alumna.  Sincere congratulations to Taylor as we wish him success with all of his future endeavours.
