Sobey School of Business student Boyce Campbell has been awarded a Futures Fund Scholarship for Outstanding Leadership.
Campbell is one of 10 university business students across Canada who have been recognized for their leadership in their academic and extra-curricular activities.
Participating schools are chosen each year by Canada's Outstanding CEO of the Year, an oganization that also honours accomplished Canadian Chief Executive Officers.
Student recipients are selected by their school's Dean's office based on their achievements and demonstrated leadership initiatives in their academic and extracurricular activities. Both graduate and undergraduate students in business degree programs are eligible.
The award program provides students with $7,500 grants to further their educational ambitions.
Among Boyce's experiences that qualified him as a successful candidate: his nine year term with the Royal Canadian Navy, culminating in a nearly seven month stint serving overseas in Afghanistan. He received an Operational Service medal for his performance. Boyce has also accrued a number of scholarships and recognitions at Saint Mary's and has participated in a summer exchange to China, worked with Enactus Saint Mary's and, as an Inuk man from Labrador, is a co-president of the Indigenous Student Society of Saint Mary's. Boyce has already made a strong impact on the world. With a business education from the Sobey School, Boyce will truly be a Canadian leader to be reckoned with.
