Meet the President’s Gold Medal winners


The President’s Gold Medal

Nipissing is proud to celebrate the academic achievements of its graduates with The President’s Gold Medal.  The President’s Gold Medal is awarded at convocation to full or part-time students that attain the highest academic average in all courses in their degree program.

NU News spoke to the award-wining students about their time at Nipissing, how they achieved their academic success and their future goals.  This week’s feature focuses on the President’s Gold Medal winning graduates of Fine Arts and English Studies.

Emily Dalmer is from Orillia, Ontario. She attended Nipissing University for the Bachelor of Fines Arts with Honours program, minoring in Native Studies.

During her four years at Nipissing, Dalmer helped co-found the North Bay Art Student Collective where she was the Student/Faculty Liaison first year and Co-Chair for the second year.

During her time with the North Bay Art Student Collective, Dalmer organized a Flash Art show, assisted with the design and painting of the mural found in The Wall Bar and Grill, was a student representative in the Academic Regulations Curriculum Committee, as well as managed and held the role of team Captain for a hockey team in the University's intramural Nipissing Hockey League.  In addition, Dalmer worked in Student Services as an Academic Success Coach and a Peer Tutor.

For the future she hopes to continue making art. She has made plans to return to Nipissing University for the Bachelor of Education program, with teachables in Art and History.

Alannah Palmer is originally from Sparta, Ontario, but is now calling North Bay home.  Palmer graduated from Nipissing’s Bachelor of Arts program in English Studies. 

During her time at Nipissing, Palmer was involved in volunteer work. She was a volunteer youth program coordinator with her husband and other volunteer opportunities with her church. Palmer also hosted international high school exchange students through Muskoka Language International and worked at a part-time job.

In addition to raising her two sons, Palmer aims to publish a series of short stories within the next few years, as creative writing is her passion.
