Raphael Nowak Winner of Pushor Mitchell $10,000 Gold Medal leadership Award
Being a top-level student isn’t easy, especially when you’re literally saving lives in your free time. But that’s all in a day’s work for UBC Okanagan’s Raphael Nowak, winner of a top $10,000 academic prize.
Nowak is this year’s winner of the Pushor Mitchell LLP Gold Medal Leadership Prize.
Now in its eighth year, the prize recognizes a top graduating student in the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences for academic and community leadership.
“It’s a huge honour,” says Nowak. “It’s very kind for organizations like this to recognize individuals who have gone above and beyond in the community while remaining committed to academics as well.”
