Three ChemE students receive prestigious Cressy Awards for outstanding leadership

Three ChemE students were presented with 2019 Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Awards on Monday: Locke Davenport Huyer (IBBME/ChemE PhD 1T9), Molly Gorman (ChemE 1T8 + PEY), and Rosten Role (ChemE 1T8 + PEY).

The students were recognized for their outstanding extra-curricular contributions to the Department of Chemical Engineering & Applied Chemistry, U of T Engineering, and to the University community as a whole. This year’s Cressy Award winners were recognized for their diverse activities, ranging from service in leadership roles in student government bodies such as The University of Toronto Student Union and the Engineering Society, to design achievements with the University of Toronto Aerospace Team and the Blue Sky Solar Racing team, and organizing community events such as the Women in Science & Engineering Conference.

This year’s ChemE winners join 190 other students from across the University of Toronto who were honoured at a ceremony held at Convocation Hall.

Prior to the formal awards ceremony, recipients joined Vice Dean, Undergraduate Tom Coyle at the annual Dean’s Tea to celebrate their accomplishments.

“Your meaningful contributions have made our Faculty, the University and our broader community a better place. Your enthusiasm and energy have also inspired many more to follow in your footsteps,” says Coyle. “It has been my privilege to witness your growth and development over the last few years and I look forward to following all you will accomplish in the future.”

Established in 1994, the awards are named after former U of T Vice-President of Development and University Relations, Gordon Cressy, for his commitment to higher education, and leadership in fundraising and community service. Since their inception, over 3,000 students have received the award.
