Symon wins University Prize in KHS

The Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies is pleased to recognize Mr. Cameron Symon as the most deserving recipient of the University Prize in Kinesiology and Health Studies. Cameron’s program of study is the Bachelor of Health Studies, graduating with a cumulative grade point average of 89.86%, Great Distinction. Mr. Symon was named to the Dean’s Honour List for the 2016 fall, 2017 winter and fall and the winter 2018 semesters. Cameron also recieved the Academic Silver Scholarship for the fall 2017 and 2018 semesters, the John Spencer Middleton & Jack Spencer Gordon Middleton Scholarship as well as the Friends of the University of Regina Undergraduate Award.

Mr. Symon excelled in his academics while taking on a leadership role in a collaborative project undertaken in a class which entailed leading the research, organizing group work, writing and presenting substantial portions of team-based projects. This was so successful that Cameron, along with his peers, were invited to present their findings to the University Leadership Team. Cameron volunteered with SEARCH (Student Energy in Action for Regina Community Health) eventually becoming Chair of the Board of Directors. This was a significant commitment to improving health outcomes in the North Central community, while still maintaining one of the highest academic averages in the BHS program. Cameron also volunteered in the Physical Epidemiology Lab in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies, with Big Brothers of Regina and continues to serve as a committee member for the Saskatchewan College of Paramedics.

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