The HSO's Karen Lynn Ouellette and Ben Weiss were pleased to present the 2022 award to Jeanne Rodrigue.
Algonquin College held this year's event for graduates on April 19, 2022 at the Ottawa Art Gallery, which is also where Jeanne completed her internship, contributing to the exciting new exhibit "Dark Ice" featuring the art of Ottawa's Leslie Reid and Robert Kautuk of Kangiqtugaapik, Nunavut.
It has been for all, a very different world these past few years. Algonquin College's President, Claude Brulé, spoke of the challenges faced these past two years. One of the Applied Museum Studies' coordinators and instructors mentioned that this evening for graduating students was the first time she'd met many of them in person!
We offer our congratulations to all of the graduating students, especially so in these difficult times, and we extend our best wishes as you commence exciting new careers.
