The President’s Medal is awarded each year as part of Fall Convocation to the student graduating from an undergraduate degree program who has earned the highest cumulative percentage average.
“It is an honour to receive this year’s President’s Medal,” said Lockert. “I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to expand my knowledge on a variety of subjects while studying here.”
During her time at USask, Lockert has received the Chancellor’s Scholarship, a University of Saskatchewan undergraduate scholarship, and the Len and Jen Williams scholarship. She is also the recipient of the Three-Year Medal in the College of Arts and Science, which is awarded to the most distinguished graduate receiving a first degree in a three-year program in the college.
Lockert has lived in Martensville, Sask., her whole life and graduated from Martensville High School in 2018. In the fall of 2018, she entered USask to study physiology and pharmacology in the College of Arts and Science.
In Lockert’s spare time, she enjoys walking her dogs, hiking, fishing, gardening and watching hockey and football. She also participates in the dentistry running club and the dentistry biking club.
In the future, Lockert said she plans to work as a dentist and start her own practice.
“I was fortunate enough to be accepted into the College of Dentistry this year and plan to spend the next four years studying at the University of Saskatchewan,” said Lockert.
