Happy Holidays to everyone in “The Port”!
Congratulations to Mount Allison student Ian Roberts, son of Sue and Doug, who was recently awarded second place at the Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference for his astrophysics research presentation on the structure of double peaked meteors. Ian had a busy summer working as a student researcher/teaching assistant at the university’s Gemini Observatory and capped it off with two weeks researching at the Canadian Automated Meteor Observatory in Ontario. Ian is also a member of the Mount A golf team and a participant and past mentor with Leadership Mount Allison.
Congratulations to Valerie Wohlmuth, who was chosen as one of the 20 inaugural recipients of the Annapolis Valley Regional School Board’s Working Together award, which celebrates “those who go above and beyond expectations to do a great job, whether working directly with students or behind the scenes.” She was recognized for her warm personality, work with the breakfast program, service on school committees, organizing family events for staff, donating clothing to teens in need and for taking students “under her wing.”
