Three graduate students earn Governor General’s Gold Medal awards for academic excellence

Three York University graduates are this year’s recipients of a Governor General’s Gold Medal, awarded for achieving the highest academic standing. The medals are the most prestigious recognition presented to graduate students. This year’s recipients are Siobhan Angus, Athina Peidou and Stephanie Raposo.

Awarded by the Governor General of Canada, the Governor General’s Academic Medals recognize the outstanding scholastic achievements of students in Canada. They are awarded to the student graduating with the highest average from approved university programs – gold medals at the graduate level and silver medals at the undergraduate level.

“The Governor General’s Gold Medals are a recognition not only of academic excellence, but of the many contributions these graduates have made to enriching their respective fields of study and life at York,” said President and Vice-Chancellor Rhonda L. Lenton. “The entire York community is extremely proud of Stephanie, Siobhan and Athina, and we wish them the very best in their future endeavours.”
