Wycliffe College students receive TST Awards
Congratulations to the three Wycliffe College students who received 2021-22 Toronto School of Theology (TST) Board of Trustees awards.
Kit Man (Kimberly) Lai, conjoint PhD, has received the Marjorie Watson Powles Award. This award was established by the Board of Trustees in 2002 in honour of Dr. Marjorie Watson Powles to recognize her contribution to the lives and work of women active in the church. The award is available to a TST student who actively engages in community and congregational life, demonstrates academic excellence, and brings a feminist perspective to the study of theology.
Kylah Lohnes, MTS, has received the Donald Cameron Memorial Award. This award honours the memory of Donald Cameron, who served the Toronto School of Theology in a number of capacities over many years including as Chair of the Board of Trustees and Chair of the Development Committee. Donald has a deep commitment to the wider community, and this award recognizes excellence in projects planned and completed by a student in good standing during their basic degree program, and which engaged them with the wider community beyond the Church.
Jeremy McClung, conjoint PhD, has received an Ontario Student Opportunity Trust Fund (OSOTF) Bursary. Jeremy's studies focus on Pastoral Theology. He was founding pastor of Muskoka Community Church in Port Sydney, Ontario.
In response to this TST announcement, Principal Stephen Andrews remarked, "Such a wonderful accomplishment for these worthy students and for Wycliffe College! A hearty congratulations from the whole of our College community! These achievements are both inspiring and a source of encouragement at a time when we need more good news."
