Earlier this week, The Gazette distributed awards in the form of bursaries to some Concordia University students who, one would assume, are worthy of their awards through some form of awesomeness.
I was surprised to recognize two of the names, since I’ve been pretty detached from my alma mater for three years now (long enough for everyone who was there to have gotten a degree and moved on).
A side note to these journalists-to-be: Set up blogs or other forms of personal websites so when people like me talk about you, we have something to link to. Remember, you are whatever Google says you are.
The winners are as follows:
- Susan Carson Memorial Bursary: Dominique Jarry-Shore, who freelances for The Gazette and got herself into the news recently (awkward…)
- Lew Harris Memorial Award: Siena Anstis (who hasn’t updated her blog to mention the award yet)
- Two Philip Fisher bursaries went to graduate students who are pretty much off the Internet radar: Paloma Friedman, who has written a couple of pieces for The Link, and Amanda Wenek, who apparently likes to make cats dance.
Congrats. Now go back to contemplating how this whole industry is on a downward spiral of doom.
