2020 Award Recipients

Congratulations to the 2020 recipients of the Alumni Student Leadership Award, proudly funded by the UNB Associated Alumni.

Chloe DallonChloe Dallon, a remarkable ambassador for UNB, has contributed to a number of roles throughout her four years on campus. As a math and science tutor with the Flora Beckett Math & Science Help Center, as well as a volunteer peer note taker with UNBSJ’s Accessibility Centre, she has dedicated significant time to assisting her fellow undergraduate students with their studies and academic needs.

Chloe has also demonstrated a passion for helping others, and has positively impacted many children in the community through her volunteer work as a Promise Partnership mentor, a Let’s Talk Science outreach worker and as a swimming instructor.

“Since starting at UNBSJ, I have discovered a passion for working with vulnerable people, especially children. I have established a stronger sense of self and purpose in serving my neighbours and advocating for their wellbeing. I have fostered a deeper, more profound sense of compassion, and my social skills have improved immeasurably.”


brianna-forbesBrianna Forbes, a student representative on the UNB Board of Governors, as well as SASE representative on the Students’ Representative Council, has helped enhance the student experience and advocate for student issues. A three year-member of the UNB REDS Track and field program, Brianna’s dedication to the sport has been recognized through academic all Canadian status and as an AUS medalist. She has also been an active member of UNB MEDLIFE, UNB World University Service of Canada and UNB Global Brigades.

Brianna is a strong leader in her community, spending much of her time volunteering as a veterinary assistant, as well as with St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award Program and 4-H Canada.

“By ‘daring to be wise’ during my time at UNB, I have learned how to be successful inside and outside of my UNB and local community. I know that by changing the lives of people, one person at a time, the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.”


hanna-grossmanHanna Grossman has made numerous contributions to the campus community throughout her years at UNB Saint John. A respected captain of the Seawolves basketball team, Hanna is a three-time CCAA National Scholar, recipient of the 2020 Dr. Ann Gorman Condon Academic Athletics Achievement Award and is president of the Student Athletic Advisory Council.

A tremendous volunteer, she has devoted significant time to initiatives on and off campus such as The Golden Key Society, MEDLIFE, Think Pink, Halloween for Hunger, Dalhousie Medical School and The Promise Partnership - an experience she says has been incredibly rewarding.

“I aspire to make a difference and be a leader for others, as so many people have been for me, and to make a positive difference in my community. I am fortunate to have been able to continue to grow as a leader and to contribute to my newest community, UNB.”


hannah-sharpeFrom the moment Hannah began her studies at UNB Fredericton she became an active leader in the campus community, joining both UNB Global Brigades and the UNB S.P.R.I.N.G program in her first year. Over the course of her academic career, she has continued to help enhance the student experience and contribute to her faculty through various roles.

As undergraduate student representative of the Atlantic Geoscience Society Council and the communications coordinator with the UNB Bailey Society, Hannah helps to implement and represent initiatives in the earth sciences field. She has also served as council secretary for the UNB Student Union and as a Lead Proctor with UNB Residence Life, supporting and advocating for her peers.

“I am proud to represent UNB on and off campus, and I am confident that my involvement has allowed me to develop important qualities and attributes that I will take with me as I continue to grow, while pursuing post-graduate studies and career opportunities.”
