The Governor General’s Academic Medal was first awarded in 1873 by the Earl of Dufferin, and has since become one of the most prestigious awards that a student in a Canadian educational institution can receive. The Governor General of Canada continues this tradition of encouraging scholarship across the nation and recognizing outstanding students.
Notable past recipients include prime ministers Kim Campbell and Pierre Trudeau, premiers Robert Bourassa, Tommy Douglas and Robert Stanfield, and author Gabrielle Roy. The Collegiate Bronze medal is awarded to the student who achieves the highest overall average upon graduation from a diploma level, post-secondary program.
The latest recipient at NAIT is Justine Gargula (Magnetic Resonance Imaging ’21).“I would like to thank my instructors and clinical coordinator who were pivotal to my success,” says Gargula. “I also would like to thank my friends and family for their unwavering support all these years.”
