Stephen Pelle receives Governor General’s Gold Medal

Congratulation to Stephen Pelle who defended his thesis “Continuity and Renewal in English Homiletic Eschatology, ca. 1150-1200” in the Fall. For his outstanding academic achievements he has been awarded a Governor General’s Gold Medal.

Lord Dufferin, Canada’s third Governor General after Confederation, created the Academic Medals in 1873 to encourage academic excellence across the nation. Over the years, they have become the most prestigious award that students in Canadian schools can receive. The University of Toronto annually awards only three gold medals on behalf of the Governor General to honour the academic excellence of graduate students. The medal will be presented to Stephen during an awards ceremony on May 29th. Well done!!
