On Saturday, Sept. 30, Wilfrid Laurier University’s Lazaridis School of Business and Economics celebrated nine graduates for their outstanding achievements at its fifth annual Lazaridis School Alumni Awards Gala over Homecoming weekend. The awards ceremony took place in the newly opened Lazaridis Hall on the Waterloo campus.
“The annual Lazaridis School Alumni Awards is an opportunity to honour a group of remarkable, high-achieving alumni who epitomize the institution’s proposition to inspire lives of leadership and purpose,” said Micheál Kelly, dean of the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics. “A common thread in this year’s recipients was their interest in giving their time to help to build our student experience across all our programs. The spirit of volunteerism among our graduates is incredible and we are proud to welcome them back year over year.”
