Med student lights the way
November 13, 2009
Angela Wareham, a second-year medical student, was one of the torchbearers for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Relay in St. John’s Nov. 13. She was selected by Coca-Cola and RBC to hold the torch high for her relay from the Relay Route Marker on Prince Phillip Drive to the Student Union Cafeteria. “I feel very honoured and privileged to be a torchbearer and I am really thankful for this opportunity,” said Angela.
Entrance requirements involved making a pledge to help create a better Canada. Angela’s pledge focused on her continued active volunteerism in the promotion of health and wellness on campus at Memorial and in the community.
