ESST Campus Leadership Award
Awarded yearly to an outstanding person (Acadia student, faculty or staff) who has shown dedication and leadership to sustainability initiatives on campus. A fruit tree is planted on campus in his or her name, and the person is recognized on a plaque in the ESST Student Lounge.
Grace (left, with Emily Murray, ESST Student Society co-chairperson)) has been the Sustainability Officer for the Acadia Student Union (ASU) in 2016-17 and was elected President of the ASU for 2017-18. Her work as Sustainability Officer has been groundbreaking, including, enshrining the position as an elected member of the ASU, establishing a campus coordination committee for environment and sustainability issues and pioneering efforts across the year to make Acadia a fair trade campus, which was achieved in August 2017. Acadia now has its own blend of fair trade, organic coffee. She is entering her final year of her honours degree in Environmental Science.
