Western staff recognized as ChangeMakers by United Way Elgin Middlesex


United Way Elgin Middlesex (UWEM) has recognized the outstanding dedication of volunteers from within the Western community at their annual ChangeMakers event, held on April 24, 2024.

Sara Kelly from the Ivey Business School received the “Rookie of the Year” award for her incredible work as a new Campaign Champion.

“Sara was an exemplary champion – always the first to engage when Champion emails were sent out and enthusiastic about getting the word out quickly about whatever was happening on and off campus,” United Way shared in announcing the news.

The StairClimb Team from Western Geography received a “DoGooder” award for their involvement and dedication to the event over many years.

“This core group of individuals has been an enthusiastic fixture of the StairClimb for the past 12 years (including through COVID). Their cumulative StairClimb fundraising is just shy of $20,000, and they consistently find themselves near the top of each year’s overall leaderboard and usually first or second among Western’s teams.”
