The Acadia Alumni Association has doubled its commitment to COVID-19 relief at Acadia to $100,000 by adding another $40,000 to the Student Relief Fund and earmarking $10,000 for immediate aid for international students.

Kim Meechan (’80, ’81, ’84) spent her career caring for the vulnerable in society. With three Acadia degrees in psychology (BA, BA Hons and MSc), she headed to Saskatchewan after graduation and worked for three and a half years as a psychologist for the provincial government, counselling children and families.

Acadia University’s Office of Advancement received two bronze medals at this year’s Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education (CCAE) Prix d'Excellence competition.

The Association announced this week a $50,000 donation to the recently established COVID-19 Student Relief Fund to help provide bursary support in variable amounts to second, third and fourth-year students facing ongoing and/or summer employment disruption or other financial difficulties as a result of the pandemic.

To honour her sacrifice and commemorate her remarkable personal and professional achievements, Acadia University has established the Constable Heidi Stevenson Memorial Award.

Winners have been announced in the 35th Annual Educational Advertising Awards, and Acadia University has received gold in the Fundraising Campaign category and bronze for its Annual Report to donors.
