Students at UWinnipeg had a random act of Juno* in Panagea’s Kitchen (Riddell Hall) today. The Random Act offered up the local indie folk-rock band Yes We Mystic as a lunch special. During the performance lead singer, Adam Fuhr handed a random UWinnipeg student a Juno award made out of chocolate.
During Juno week UWinnipeg will be turning up the volume with UWinnipeg Collegiate alumna and Juno award-winning singer-songwriter, Chantal Kreviazuk, on Wednesday, March 26 with a double feature.
Kreviazuk will be on campus in Convocation Hall to help launch a new performing arts program at her Alma mater at 10:00 am, followed by her receiving an honorary doctorate of letters at a Special Convocation at 12:30 pm.
Kreviazuk is being recognized for her humanitarian work and as a champion of human rights with her fellow global citizens and honorary doctorate recipients Dr. Denis Mukwege and Joseph Stern. For more information on this event please visit Special Convocation.
