Meet student leader Kerry Lynn Peltier

Nipissing students consistently impress as leaders, in the classroom, on campus and in the community.  Recently the university celebrated 25 student leaders at the annual Dave Marshall Leadership Awards.  Over the coming months, NU News will introduce each student leader to the wider community with a short article discussing their accomplishments and activities. Today, we are pleased to profile Kerry Lynn Peltier, a Bachelor of Arts, Social Welfare and Social Development student and Dave Marshall Leadership Award winner in the community category.

Peltier has been a leader and role model for her peers ever since she began in the Aboriginal Advantage Program in 2011.

As part of the Aboriginal Student Council, Peltier helped to promote upcoming cultural events to students such as the Round Dance at Nbisiing Secondary School and the Annual Powwow here at the university.

As a mentor with the Wiidooktaadwin Mentorship Program, Peltier mentored high school students at Widdifiled and Chippewa Secondary schools in cultural based projects and leadership activities.

She is a role model for her peers as she talks about her positive life experiences and healthy lifestyle. She empowers others to participate in and celebrate their culture.

The Dave Marshall Leadership Award recognizes full-time students who have made an outstanding extra-curricular contribution to their academic program, to the campus, or to the greater community. Community recipients are selected in recognition of their significant contribution to a community organization group.
