A Summer of Success for LCUR Students and Alumni

As summer comes to a close and we prep for the upcoming school year, we can’t help but reflect on the many “Luther proud” moments brought to us over the Spring and Summer of 2018 by our students and alumni. Allow us a moment to share a few highlights.

In March 2018, Luther student, Kristian Josephson, won the Mantle-Blachford Co-operative Education Student of the Year Award. This prestigious award is reflective of the success Kristian has had in his academic and community service endeavours, as well as his current co-op work placement – which, within the first month of his work term, offered him an extension into the winter semester. Studying Economics and International Studies with a concentration in International Development, Kristian is eager to get to work in the field of public service after he graduates in 2020. He hopes to research and design policies and programs that directly address socio-economic development issues such as poverty, access to health-care, and inequality. Kristian will be back to student life at Luther in the Fall of 2018 – an experience which he describes as “very positive” due to “support systems that are in place [at Luther] to help students succeed.”

Andie Chernoff, a current LCUR student working towards a Bachelor of Science, Honours, in Psychology, received the University Medal, awarded to an undergraduate student who has had the highest academic standing during the previous 12 months, at the University of Regina’s Spring 2018 convocation. Andie, who boasts a cumulative grade point average of 97.1% said of the award, “I feel honoured, on behalf of all young women, to have received the University Medal, for it reveals what we are capable of when given equal access to opportunities and resources." Along with Kristian, we are happy to welcome Andie back to student-life this fall as she completes her fourth year.

Someone who knows all about those all-important student supports is alumna, Aimee Schulhauser (U’03). Amy has made a name for herself in Regina’s food industry as owner and CEO of Schoolhaus Culinary Arts, and Tangerine: the food bar. She’s made such an impression on the foodies and business community in Regina that she was a YMCA Regina Women of Distinction Awards nominee and at the awards ceremony in April 2018, she won in her category: Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

Alumna Kelti Smith (U’18) was this year’s Luther Medal of Distinction winner at Luther’s Spring 2018 Convocation. “I was thrilled,” says Kelti, “to have been awarded the Luther Medal of Distinction! Being involved in the Luther community for eight years -- in high school and in university -- has been a wonderful experience. While being awarded the Luther Medal of Distinction acts as a testament to my success, I believe more so that the success lies in the Luther community for their constant support, encouragement, and dedication to their students.” Kelti is currently working on her Masters of Applied Science in Chemical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto.

And with all of those “Luther proud” moments, we are eagerly anticipating the beginning of another incredible school year!
