A trampoline standout, and soon-to-be graduate of the Faculty, Rosie MacLennan captured gold at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico on October 11.
When MacLennan returns home, she’ll be celebrating two milestones: her medal and graduating from the Faculty of Physical Education and Health with high honours.
"Rosie has been an exemplary student-athlete throughout her entire career here at the Faculty,” says Gretchen Kerr, associate dean, undergraduate education. “Winning gold at the Pan Am Games and graduating with high honours demonstrate her exceptional commitment to both her academics and her sport. We couldn't be more proud."
