Meet student leader Abbey Thompson
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 Abbey Thompson, who is working toward a Bachelor of Business Administration degree, Marketing stream.
Thompson is a kind and empathetic person, whose enthusiasm for Nipissing University shines through all she does at work, in her academics, and in her various volunteer roles.
On campus, Thompson donates her spare time to help out wherever she can. As a Peer Educator with Student Development and Services, she supports students in their transition to Nipissing through events like New Student Orientation and Laker Orientation. Identified as a positive role model for Nipissing, Thompson was invited to represent the School of Business at the Ontario Universities’ Fair this past fall. She also showed her enthusiasm for Nipissing locally through a poster presentation, which featured the “NU Mona Lisa” poster, and examined high renaissance genre’s use in advertising. The presentation was deemed passionate, resourceful and thorough by attendees.
In the community, Thompson has been an active volunteer for FIRST Robotics, Anthony Rota’s Nipissing-Timiskaming Constituency Youth Council, and Worthy Devotion Day (a self-esteem and self-care day for girls which she founded) at Chippewa Secondary School.
Thompson is an outstanding role model for youth, her peers, and girls in grades 7 – 10 respectively; there is no doubt that Thompson will continue to make a positive impact on the lives of others for years to come.
The university community is proud to recognize Abbey Thompson with a Dave Marshall Leadership Award in the Campus Category.
