Girodat wins University Prize

The Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies is pleased to recognize Ms. Reece Girodat as the most deserving recipient of the University Prize in Kinesiology and Health Studies. Reece’s program of study is the Bachelor of Kinesiology with a major in Human Kinetics, graduating with a cumulative grade point average of 86.05%, giving her a Great Distinction designation. 

Excelling in academics was something Reece took very seriously as demonstrated throughout her academic career at the University of Regina.  Ms. Girodat was named to the Dean’s Honour List in each of the 2018, 2019, and 2020 winter semesters.  She received the Centennial Merit Plus Scholarship in the 2017 fall semester and the Academic Silver Scholarship in the 2018 and 2019 fall semesters. 

A required component for all students of the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies, is to complete a fieldwork placement; Reece completed hers at the Central Avenue Physiotherapy, Swift Current, Saskatchewan.  Some of her goals, to name a few, were to assist clients with their rehabilitation process, which included building a rapport, developing individualized exercise programs, and an overall of, just being there to assist clients, however possible.  Reece found this experience to be so rewarding, an impact which she believes to be life-lasting, knowing she has chosen the right career path.  Her placement supervisor recognized that Reece is ready for the work force. 

A quote from Reece, "People might not always remember what you said nor will they always remember what you did, but people will always remember how you made them feel”.  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 Reece as we wish her success with all of her future endeavours.
