What's happening at Acadia

Grace Pinch of the Acadia women's rugby team has been named a finalist in the Canadian Olympic Committee's annual, cross-country talent search: RBC Training Ground.

Over the past several months more than 4,000 athletes from a wide range of sports participated, performing core speed, strength, power, and endurance tests for review by talent scouts from eight different Olympic sports. The top 100  deemed to have great Olympic potential, including Pinch, will now compete in the RBC Training Ground national final, with the chance of being one of 30 athletes to earn funding and an accelerated path to the Olympics.

At its annual fall meeting, Acadia University’s governing board elected Henry Demone (’76) as Chair. Formerly Board Secretary, Demone joined Acadia’s Board in October 2012 and succeeds John Rogers (’79) who began his term as Board Chair in October 2016.

“Your alma mater has a big impact on your life – what you learn, the people you meet, how you grow in those years. Universities like Acadia are an important part of people’s formative years. I am pleased to take on this new role because it is crucial for Acadia to remain strong and healthy for future generations,” says Demone, who specializes in helping organizations thrive.

Chris Callbeck, Vice-President, Finance and Administration and Chief Financial Officer at Acadia University, will serve as the Canadian University Association of Business Officers (CAUBO) President.

Founded in 1937, CAUBO is a non-profit professional organization representing the chief administrative and financial officers at over 100 universities and affiliated colleges in Canada.
