Paula Larsson - Arts Cup
Paula Larsson graduated in June 2013 with honours degrees in history and anthropology. She has volunteered in numerous capacities while at Mount Royal. In the 2011-2012 academic year, she took on the executive position of treasurer with the Student’s Historical Society, which sparked her interest in student clubs. She served as president of the the Tea Society and the Board Game Club, both of which she founded. The Tea Society started with a membership of 15-20 people, but within a year topped 220. It has organized large events such as a Hub night, Halloween party, Christmas party, an exotic tea tasting and was an important contributor to International Food Day. Paula also worked with Student Learning Services and Accessibility Services for three years, as both a peer tutor and a learning aid. She also volunteered at several events Mount Royal hosted, including Alberta Culture Days, the Mount Royal open house and various conferences. Off campus, she has served as a Volunteer Archaeology School Program Coordinator with Fort Calgary, which involves running school programs for grade 3 children. She is also a registered member of Girl Guides of Canada and leads a unit of brownies. Clearly, Ms. Larsson has enriched the lives of many both on and off the university campus and is a most deserving recipient of the Arts Citizenship Cup.
