“Dear Dr. MacDonald and the Faculty of Education,

Thank you for the Alicia Gallant Award.  I am grateful that I have been selected as the recipient.

I am currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Education Program at UPEI.  I am from Kinkora, Prince Edward Island and completed my undergrad at St. Thomas University with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Psychology and Gerontology.  After graduating from the Bachelor of Education Program, I plan on completing my Masters in School Psychology to become a School Psychologist.

Thank you again for this help with my education.  I appreciate the kindness and generosity of this award.

Sincerely,

Taylor Baglole”

RELAY FOR LIFE

Plans are well under way for this year’s Cancer Society Relay For Life event at UPEI !
Relay For Life is an inspirational, non-competitive, FUNdraising event that celebrates life, honours and remembers loved ones and unites us in the fight against Cancer.
The Canadian Cancer Society Relay online system is now ready to take your registration for this year’s event which will take place on the UPEI campus at the Chi-Wan Young Sports Centre on Friday January 20, 2017 from 6 pm to midnight.
We would like to consider having a Faculty of Education team(s) participate in this event. Please let us know if you are interested!

Cancer has touched us all. Let’s come together as a university community to fundraise and help Islanders living with cancer. Join us on January 20 (2017) at UPEI for six hours of entertainment and fun activities. Together, we will celebrate with survivors, remember those we’ve lost, and fight back with those still on their cancer journey!
