Brandon University graduate Whitney Hodgins has been named the first recipient of the new Jim and Ginette Munson Autism Leadership Award, after spending years raising awareness for Manitobans with disabilities.
The 27-year-old formally received this award during the eighth annual Canadian Autism Leadership Summit, an event that is run by the Canadian Autism Spectrum Disorder Alliance (CASDA) and officially wrapped up on Tuesday.

Due to the storm, which has closed campus and is expected to cause power and internet outages, the Senior Student Colloquium and Three-Minute Thesis event scheduled for Thursday, April 14 has been postponed to Thursday, April 28th.

Brandon University will be recognized as Canada’s Finest Regional University under the leadership of a new strategic plan that will guide BU for the coming five years.
“Regional universities like BU are essential parts of Canada’s post-secondary system, providing unparalleled focus on the regions we call home, and this plan reinforces our natural strengths,” said BU President Dr. David Docherty.
