Patrick O'Neill Award

Recipient - Sarah Myatt Schafer, B.Ed. Program

Congratulations to Sarah Myatt Schafer, Bachelor of Education program, on winning the Patrick O’Neill Award for Labour Activism given by the Acadia University Faculty Association to a student labour activist in memory of one of the founders of the faculty association, Dr. Pat O’Neill. Those who have been around for awhile will remember Pat as an AUFA stalwart who was involved in the formation of the union in the 1970s and who continued to lead, participate and support academic unionism long after his retirement. Amongst his many awards and accomplishments he received CAUT’s Distinguished Academic Award.

Thanks to Dan d’Entremont for putting forward the nomination.
