Athletic Therapy students take to Blue Jays diamond to receive recognition for academic achievement
Sheridan faculty and Toronto Blue Jays athletic therapists were on hand at the Rogers Centre to present awards to Ari Barook (front row, third from left) and Callista Tsangarakis (front row, fourth from left).
In September, two Honours Bachelor of Applied Therapy students received awards of excellence awards from the Toronto Blue Jays during an on-field ceremony before the Jays took on the Boston Red Sox.
Ari Barook received the Dr. Ron Taylor Award for academic excellence within the Athletic Therapy program. She spent the summer working with the Major League Rugby team Toronto Arrows and at the Canadian Sports Institute of Ontario, both of which she called incredible learning opportunities.
Callista Tsangarakis, meanwhile, received the coveted Toronto Blue Jays Scholarship, which allowed her to intern with the Blue Jays during their 2023 season. In the 35-years since its inception, Tsangarakis is just the third female recipient. It is also the first time that both students awarded on the field have been women.
Janet Morrison, Sheridan’s President and Vice-Chancellor, attended to celebrate both student’s ground-breaking accomplishments.
