History Undergrad William Gill Receives Centre for Scottish Studies Award

April 06, 2016

William Gill’s warm heart and intellectual curiosity have made him a well-known student amongst the teaching faculty in SFU’s Department of History. Professor Katie McCullough, who nominated Gill for this year’s Jennifer Wade Award in Scottish Studies, says “William is an absolute pleasure to be around and truly has fun learning (as evidenced by his infectious laugh in class!).” Professor Aaron Windel says, “William is a tremendously talented student of history. His hard work, good humour and incisive mind leave an unforgettable impression.” Not only is William’s academic work creating a buzz, he is also active in many endeavours that demonstrate his humanitarian nature and altruistic concern for often marginalized groups, such as LGBT youth.
