Shaun Francis: Canada has a proud military once again
Recently, Gen. Natynczyk took me aside to tell me what a favour RMC was doing by presenting me with an honorary degree. “Finally, Shaun,” he said in his powerful voice. “You’re going to graduate from a proper service academy.” As I watched the parades and ceremonies, I couldn’t help but feel proud to join the community that exists around Gen. Natynczyk’s proper academy.
Dr. Hafizur Rahman has been honoured by the Kingston branch of the Queen’s University Alumni Association.
Dr. Rahman, a 1970 Queen’s graduate who’s an electrical and computing engineering professor at Royal Military College, received the Padre Laverty Award in recognition of his 30 years of service to Queen’s and the Kingston community.
Rahman was a founding member of Kingston and District Immigrant Services and a past president of the Kingston Islamic Society. He has also served on the Queen’s University International Centre Council and the Queen’s Interfaith Council.
The Padre Laverty Award, presented annually since 1967, is named for late Queen’s University chaplain Marshall Laverty, who died in February at age 98.
