Geophysics Student Recognized as Academic All-Canadian

Department of Earth Sciences geophysics Honours student, Joey Pittman, was recently recognized as an Academic All-Canadian for his achievements in varsity track and field athletics while maintaining an 80+ average. In 1988, USPORTS introduced its first Academic All-Canadians, those exceptional student-athletes who achieve an academic standing of 80% or higher while playing on a university varsity team. On January 10th, the Sea-Hawks hosted their first event to celebrate the academic accomplishments of Memorial's student-athletes who have been named Academic All-Canadians. Only 39 students throughout the university received this honour.
