Maddie Watson - Field House

Maddie Watson Field House 

Gryphon Greatness July 2019 | Maddie Watson – Field House

Maddie will be leaving us August 9th to pursue further education at the University of Windsor/University of Detroit Mercy Law school.  Maddie is about to embark on a dual Juris Doctor degree which will see her split her time between Windsor and Detroit to learn both Canadian and American law.  Maddie leaves behind a legacy of excellence including time volunteered to the AAC, ARC, and JHSC; several key edits and additions to the fieldhouse employee manual; a staff training curriculum which includes "tricky scenarios" training (an activity which Maddie had a large role in developing); acting as a community liaison for the Campus Friends program and bringing those opportunities for volunteering to the fieldhouse; honorary GAC counsellor status for engaging campers, counsellors and their parents as if she were GAC camp staff herself; multiple nominations for major ARC awards at the annual banquet; and many friendships which transcend the workplace.  Maddie's next step to law school is demonstrative of why she embodies the Gryphon spirit and what Gryphon Greatness means.
