Branch Rising Star Award

The Branch Rising Star Award is awarded annually to recognize a new volunteer to the Branch network or someone who has assumed a different role in the Branch and has accomplished incredible things through their dedication and commitment to the Branch. This is an individual we hope will have a long and happy volunteer experience with the Branch network.

Monica, the Montreal Branch president, has been described as the “heart and soul of the Queen’s community in Montreal.” She has hosted a number of events and people have praised her abilities to get alumni together and forge new connections. She was instrumental in the successful relaunch, this year, of the Branch’s prestigious John B. Stirling Award.

Monica was honoured at the QUAA Alumni Awards Gala on April 5, 2014 as part of the Alumni Volunteer Summit.
