Congratulations to KI 2022 Academic Achievement Award winner!

Luna Kawano, BKI'22 is the recipient of the Academic Achievement Award for the Bachelor of Knowledge Integration (BKI) graduating class of 2022 in recognition of academic excellence.

Here's what Luna said:

“To be completely honest, I was not expecting to receive this award. Although I have been heavily involved on and beyond campus, I have not been super involved academically. I did not realize I had a Dean’s Honours Average until I got the email suggesting I apply. I guess I bring this up because it connects to the greatest lesson I learned in KI – learning is FUN.
