Commitment to community engagement reaps Lieutenant-Governor’s medal

SFU alumnus Kelsey Dubiel, who holds an SFU BA (’13) in criminology, says she feels strongly about the importance of community-based programs and the integral role they play in community development and crime prevention. After volunteering in communities throughout Canada and Australia, and working in youth programming for the Coquitlam School District, she returned to SFU to earn a post-baccalaureate in counselling and human development. She is eligible to convocate this month and has just won a B.C. Lieutenant Governor’s medal, bestowed on post-secondary students who have demonstrated significant contributions to community. She now lives in Toronto where she is pursuing an MA in counselling psychology, and volunteering with the Elizabeth Fry Society of Toronto.
