The Acadia Alumni Association is proud to announce that Geoff Irvine (’87) is this year’s recipient of the Acadia Alumni Isaac Chipman Award for Excellence in Alumni Service.

When Julia Whidden (’13, ’15) attended Acadia University, she had no idea how much her experience would inform the work she now does for Terranaut Club in Nova Scotia.

If anyone at Acadia epitomizes the term, ‘university service’, it’s Cheryl. Currently Administrative Manager, Dean of Arts, Cheryl has devoted herself to the University for more than 40 years in a variety of different positions and capacities, greeting the public, alumni, students, faculty and staff with consistent kindness and professionalism.

Dr. Rod Morrison, Vice-President, Advancement and Donalda MacBeath (’75), President, Acadia Alumni Association, recently announced that Oonagh Proudfoot (’93, ’06) has been appointed Executive Director, Alumni Affairs.

A modern-day pioneer in cancer research is honouring a similar pioneer from the last century. Allen Eaves (’62) is funding the creation of a larger-than-life bronze portrait of Charles Huggins, who graduated from Acadia in 1920.
