2014 winner

Amnit Litt

For economics graduate Amnit Litt, winning Simon Fraser University’s most prestigious undergraduate honour – the Gordon M. Shrum Undergraduate Medal – is as much a matter of joy as it is a big surprise.

The medal is awarded annually for exemplary academic achievement and demonstrated commitment to SFU.

“It is indeed very unexpected,” says Litt, who earned a grade-point average of 4.13 out of a possible 4.33 despite an exhausting list of SFU volunteer commitments. She graduated with a BA (honours).
