Brock Badgers swimmer Celine Funk graduated Friday, June 19 with a Medical Sciences degree after making a significant impact on Brock and the Niagara community.
When varsity swimmer Celine Funk first arrived at Brock University, she found life away from her tiny hometown near Kitchener a bit intimidating.
But diving into everything the University had to offer quickly ignited her courage. Four years later, as she prepares to graduate with a Medical Sciences degree on Friday, she will leave Brock having made a significant impact on the community.
Funk won a number of community service awards this season for her work with young adults who have disabilities, peer mentoring of at-risk high school students and volunteering with Special Olympics and the Alzheimer's Society of Niagara.
"I am very excited to be graduating," said Funk, who will be one of nearly 3,000 students celebrated Friday, June 19 during Brock's first-ever Virtual Spring Convocation. "While being a student-athlete has been a huge part of my undergraduate experience, academics has always been a priority for me.
"Throughout these past four years, I know that I have worked incredibly hard to get to this point, and receiving my diploma will validate all the hard work I have put in."
