August 2, 2012

After pleading guilty Wednesday to bank robbery charges, Meghan Darcy Melnyk apologized for bringing international notoriety to herself and Mount Royal University, where she had been the student union president until her unexpected resignation in January. "I feel horrible," Melnyk said. "I am so regretful that my actions put them in such a negative spotlight." Melnyk said she has no plans to return to university until she gets help. Calgary Herald
