“It’s so great to see so many of our alumni being recognized,” said Halko-Addley, “we have such a diverse group of alumni that are involved in their local communities in a variety of ways. It is great to see that they are continuing to be involved, even several years after their time with SUSK is over. I’m so proud of all of the recipients. They have done amazing work for our community and it’s nice to see them receiving well deserved recognition.”
