To say that Lucas Oickle (’13) has hit all the right notes before and after graduation would be an understatement. A gifted and talented composer and educator, Lucas has created over 30 new works and had numerous commissions and performances by professional ensembles since 2013. His continued success as a composer has brought great pride to Acadia and is one of the reasons why he is the 2022 recipient of the Alumni Association’s Outstanding Young Alumni Award.

Winners have been announced in the 37th Annual Educational Advertising Awards competition, and Acadia’s Office of Advancement has earned top honours in multiple categories.

Dr. Trevor Jain (’93) is an avid lifelong learner whose curiosity and passion for knowledge has allowed him to forge an enviable career as a trauma physician and disaster medicine specialist. The Acadia Alumni Association applauds his remarkable commitment to public service and is pleased to add another accolade by naming Dr. Jain as its 2022 Distinguished Alumni Award recipient.

A beautiful and touching tribute by Acadia honorary degree recipient and poet laureate Dr. George Elliott Clarke ('12 HON) on the recent passing of fellow Acadia honorary degree recipient, Alex McDonough ('12 HON).

Black history shouldn’t be celebrated for only one month. Black history matters, and Black history is our history. Acadia grad Véronique Russell (’16) celebrates four resilient, empowered members of Acadia’s Black community as part of African Heritage Month.

Happy Holidays to one and all! We asked: what makes the season so memorable? Here’s what our Advancement team had to say.
