Three co-op students named Co-op Students of the Year for 2011
Three outstanding UVic co-op students have been named “Co-op student of the year” by their respective co-op program areas.
- Bachelor of Commerce student Erin Stead was named the Co-op Student of the Year for the Business Co-op and Career program. During her recent work term with the Provincial Treasury of the BC Ministry of Finance, she supported two senior staff complete reporting and analysis requirements for the BC government’s multi-billion dollar borrowing program. Stead’s supervisor described her as working at an “extremely high level” and noted that Stead “distinguished herself with her enthusiasm, intelligence and commitment to continuous learning.”
- Electrical engineering student Bernard Lambrechts is the Co-op Student of the Year for Engineering and Computer Science/Math Co-op and Career. He completed two work terms with Research in Motion, as well as terms with Pacific Geoscience Centre in Sidney and, most recently, Broadcom. Described as “an innovative thinker” whose “can-do attitude helps him exceed his supervisor’s expectations,” Lambrechts is also a passionate musician and has been a mentor to other co-op students.
- Women’s Studies student Jasmine Nielsen is the recipient of the Optional and Professional Program’s Co-op Student of the Year award. She completed work terms with an environmental NGO, the Ministry of Health’s Emergency Management Unit, local not-for-profit Mosqoy and GlobalFest. She is an active volunteer who is described by her employers as “mature beyond her years and truly passionate about helping communities both locally and internationally.”
Co-op employers and co-op supervisors nominate co-op students of the year each year. The winners were recognized at Co-op and Career's Employer Appreciation Reception on January 24, 2012, in Victoria.
