This is a remarkable award, and given this year to an equally remarkable person–
“From living on the street to becoming a passionate community member, artist and education activist, Zoey Roy is an example of positive change.
The Saskatoon-based spoken-word poet, emcee and student in the Saskatchewan Urban Native Teacher Education Program (SUNTEP) is a recipient of a national student fellowship, presented by 3M Canada and the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE).
The 3M National Student Fellowship Award was introduced in 2012 to honour undergraduate students in Canada who have demonstrated qualities of outstanding leadership and who embrace a vision where the quality of their educational experience can be enhanced in academia and beyond.”
