On February 17th, three members of the History Department past and present -- Bill Waiser, Jim Miller, and Mike Hayden -- were among 37 men and women honoured with the Commemorative Medal for the Centennial of Saskatchewan at a ceremony at Convocation Hall hosted by Her Honour the Honourable Dr. Lynda Haverstock, Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan. Over the course of this centennial year, 4,000 such medals will be awarded. The medal recognizes "individuals who have made significant contributions to society and honours their outstanding achievements." As indeed our three worthy friends, colleagues, and teachers have.

Astonishingly, if you click here you can already read more about the medal in Wikipedia. Just remember, kids: don't use Wikipedia for your essays.
