Student leaders recognized at annual brunch

WATERLOO, Ont. (April 9, 2013) - Tuesday morning, Wilfrid Laurier University's Department of Athletics and Recreation hosted its annual Recreation Student Leader & Student Staff Brunch recognizing all their achievements over the past year.  

This past year was Athletics and Recreation's most successful to date as it saw the largest registration for intramurals, the largest number of visitors each week in all our facilities, the largest number of people per day using the fitness centre as well as the busiest open recreation gym time for students. It was with the hard work and dedication of all our student staff that this is made possible. Our student staff spent countless hours working towards every service that is provided to allow for the most positive experience for all participants.

Students also had the opportunity to listen to speeches made by Adam Lawrence, Acting Dean of Students, as well as PETER BAXTER, Director of Athletics and Recreation.

The department also handed out 16 awards as well as recognizing four recipients of scholarship awards which acknowledged outstanding student leadership and contribution at Laurier. The award winners were as follows: 

The Don Smith Award is awarded to a student who has made a lasting contribution to Athletics and Recreation at Laurier.  This year's recipient was Wes VanLuven. Wes is currently the department's Intramural Coordinator as well as this summer Multi Sport Camp Coordinator and has been a part of the Student Staff team for four years.

The Outstanding Customer Service Award is awarded annually to the student who portrays outstanding customer service to all visitors to our facilities. This year's recipient was Jarrett Humphreys.  Jarrett has worked the past four years in the department, including roles with Events and Facilities & Customer Service. Jarrett is currently our Hawk Desk Co-Coordinator.
