On Feb. 28, four HKR students joined several other Memorial students at the Confederation Building in St. John's for the Volunteer Incentive Program (V.I.P.) recognition ceremony. Amanda Gosse (bronze), Peter Coleman (bronze and silver), Julie Orr (bronze, silver and gold), and Alyssa Feener (gold) all represented HKR at the ceremony.Julie is a third year kinesiology student. "These awards mean a great deal to me, I love the sense of pride and accomplishment that accompanies volunteering," says Julie. "I honestly volunteer because I love it. I love getting out into the community and meeting other individuals who have similar interests to mine."
The program, an initiative of the Student Volunteer Bureau â€' a partnership between Career Development and Experiential Learning and Memorial University of Newfoundland Students' Union â€' began in 2003 and encourages students to track their volunteer efforts both on and off campus.
