This year, 102 students received more than 40 awards.
The ceremony included remarks by Sandra Carroll, interim associate dean and director of the School of Nursing at McMaster University; James Humphreys, executive dean of the School of Health and Life Sciences and Community Services at Conestoga College, and Paul Armstrong, vice-president, academic of Mohawk College.
