Khadija Lee of Kitchener, Ont. is the 2012 winner of the Lou Cahill Scholarship in Communications awarded by Brock. The Scholarship is awarded to a communications student in the final year of study for academic excellence, community involvement and participation in charitable activities.
The Scholarship was established to honour Lou Cahill, the founder of Enterprise Canada, the country’s longest-operating public relations firm. An icon of the Canadian public relations industry, Lou Cahill died in November 2008 at the age of 94. He held an honorary doctoral degree from Brock.
“We are delighted that Khadija has received the Lou Cahill Scholarship in Communications,” said Barbara Fox, Enterprise Canada President and Chief Executive Officer. “Lou Cahill would have been proud of her community involvement and commitment to charitable service.”
According to Jennifer Good, associate professor of Communication, Popular Culture and Film at Brock, “Khadija looked for everything she could possibly get from her education experience and gave so much to the rest of us in the process.”
