Meet student leader Destiny Murtaugh

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 Destiny Murtaugh. Destiny is in the Concurrent Bachelor of Education Degree Program, and is working toward a Bachelor of Arts degree, with Honours Specialization in English Studies, and a Bachelor of Education degree – Junior/Intermediate division.

Over the past four years, Destiny has contributed to the overall campus culture through her participation in a variety of organizations and clubs. She has been a Frosh Leader, member of Jack.Org, Nipissing University Student Alumni volunteer, Open House Volunteer, First Year English Representative, General Council Social Chair, and Vice President Social for the Townhouse Residence Complex. She has also been a student member of the Arts and Science Curriculum Review Committee, Director-at-Large with the Nipissing University Student Union, an English tutor for the English Club, and the Philanthropy Chair for Alpha Gamma Phi, volunteering countless hours with the sorority fundraising for charities such as the Canadian Cancer Society and the North Bay Humane Society.

During her time as VP Social, Destiny organized a program called Agents of Kindness that encouraged students to complete small acts of kindness for their neighbours. She extended this initiative on campus and engaged in random acts of kindness for others at Nipissing.

Destiny is dedicated to campus life and will go out of her way to help others. She has a huge heart and loves to get involved in any way she can.

The university community recognizes Destiny with a Dave Marshall Leadership Award in the Campus Category.
