On April 16, we celebrated the accomplishments of Trinity’s Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Award Recipients, six of whom are also Trinity One alumni. The Cressy Awards recognize graduating students for outstanding contributions to improving the world around them and inspiring others to do the same. The Trinity One Program extends it congratulations to:

Sebastian Dutz – IR Stream 2012
Sarah Levy – IR Stream 2012
Meghan Peterson – IR Stream 2012
Tina Saban – Ethics Stream 2012
Zane Schwartz – IR Stream 2012
Larysa Workewych – Ethics Stream 2012

The Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Awards were established in 1994 by the University of Toronto Alumni Association (UTAA) and the Division of University Advancement in order to recognize students who have made outstanding extra-curricular contributions to their college, faculty or school, or to the university as a whole. In naming the awards after Gordon Cressy, former vice-president of development and university relations, the UTAA recognized his commitment to higher education and his leadership in fundraising and community service. The qualities of leadership and dedication demonstrated by Mr. Cressy during his six years with the university are also embodied in the efforts of students chosen to receive this award – students who are committed to be “making a difference.”

Trinity students’ contributions back to the College and to the University of Toronto are regularly recognized with a high number of Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Awards, and this year is no exception. Congratulations to all our 22 winners and to the many outstanding community leaders whom we were not able to recognize with this award. Trinity College students have long had an outstanding record of academic excellence and of achievement in community engagement and leadership.
