Hospitality, Food and Tourism Management alumnus Drew Cumpson wrote a column in the Globe and Mail June 22 on building a career after being paralyzed. Cumpson, who suffered a spinal cord injury in 2011 while surfing in Peru, graduated from U of G in 2016. He said there were challenges in continuing his education but said the school was very helpful in accommodating him. After working in sales and marketing for a small company, Cumpson has now started his own business, H&D Consulting, in hospitality and disability consulting.
