Student Leader Speaks at Local Business Event


U of G graduate student Gavin Armstrong will be keynote speaker at an April 13 breakfast event hosted by the Career Education Council (CEC) of Guelph-Wellington-Dufferin. The annual CEC event highlights local business and education partnerships.

A 2011 graduate of U of G’s marketing management program, Armstrong’s topic is “Making Hunger History: Students and Business are Changing our World.”

As an undergraduate, he organized an international hunger summit at U of G, “Hunger Has No Boundaries.” He has also spent time volunteering in the refugee camps in Dadaab, Kenya, and with the world food program in Rome.

Last fall, Armstrong was named one of the Guelph Mercury’s Top 40 Under 40.
