Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada, presented the Governor General’s Academic All-Canadian Commendation for the 2017-2018 season to eight recipients during a ceremony at Rideau Hall. The Governor General’s Academic All-Canadian Commendation recognizes student-athletes who have maintained an average of 80 per cent or higher over the academic year while playing on one or more of their university’s varsity teams. U SPORTS selects one female and one male student-athlete from each of the four conferences.
Academics and sports reinforce each other, and together bring us to new heights of excellence. Congratulations to the 2017-2018 recipients of the Governor General’s Academic All-Canadian Commendation. pic.twitter.com/U186V283Ua— GGJuliePayette (@GGJuliePayette) January 30, 2019
