September 16, 2021
St Lawrence College has announced the renaming and rebranding of the Indigenous Student Centres at its Kingston, Brockville, and Cornwall campuses. The centres have been renamed the Waasaabiidaasamose (Whah-sah Bid–eh–so–may) Indigenous Centre in honour of Knowledge Keeper Helena Neveu, who has become a full-time Knowledge Keeper In-Residence at SLC. Neveu will promote health and well-being at the centre, as well as work on increasing awareness of Indigenous history, traditions, and culture. “I have an inexhaustible desire to help students strive for their personal excellence through Indigenous education and land-based training,” said Neveu. “Chi Miigwitch, St Lawrence College, for this incredible gift.” The Whig | SLC (ON)
