Shauna Kay-Jones, 2015-16 Valedictorian

A motivated and charismatic Applied Computing student, Shauna Kay-Jones represented the Faculty of Applied Science and Technology at the Thursday evening Convocation ceremony as Valedictorian.

Being a regular in the spotlight at Sheridan, Shauna spoke to her peers with a moving and inspirational Valedictory address. With many successes under her belt, Shauna is the embodiment of what many Sheridan students embrace. Involvement, hard work, engagement, self-betterment and success.

Shauna, a recipient of the CAFCE National Co-op Student of the year award, former Student Representative and Career Centre Peer Mentor, Capstone team member in the development of a tool to support and motivate individuals on the Autism Spectrum (Motify), and co-collaborator in creating an app to track health data (Health Espresso) already has an impressive list of accomplishments and successes. There's no doubt that list will grow as she excels in the workplace.

Shauna is a graduate from the Software Development and Network Engineering Co-op program and was quickly scooped up by Pointclickcare as a full-time Business Systems Analyst. Advice to her peers includes the recommendation to learn as much as you possibly can from your professors, as they’re still active in industry and are a wealth of real-world knowledge and networking possibilities.

Congratulations Shauna. We wish you every success in your career as a Business Systems Analyst.
