Congratulations to our 2017/18 Lloyd Douglas Scholarship Award Winners! 



Garrett Murray, Borden-Carleton, PE




Garrett Murray is in the second-year of the Sustainable Design Engineering program at the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI). He comes from the community of Augustine Cove, PEI. For all his life he lived on a potato farm owned by his father, where he helped out with many duties. Along with working on the farm he spent a lot of time going to school and playing several sports such as hockey and baseball, that he still plays today. Through his school years he was heavily involved in sports and extra-curricular activities, but he also was always heavily focused on his studies. This focus allowed him to gain great success in academics as he received the 2016 Governor’s General Medal from his high school, Kinkora Regional High. Throughout high school he started a summer job working for the South Shore Watershed Association (SSWA). He also worked with this organization in the last summer and spent a large portion of time dedicated to monitoring, sampling and cleansing springs and streams along the South Shore. His experience with the jobs of SSWA provided him with an increased awareness of just how important clean water is to society, and overall enhanced his environmental consciousness. His has influenced him to pursue an engineering degree at UPEI, where the ideas of sustainability and environmental protection of thoroughly highlighted.


Bridget Campbell - St. John's, NL 




Ms. Bridget Campbell is currently in the Advanced Diploma in Water Quality program at the Fisheries and Marine Institute at Memorial University. In 2011 she earned a degree in Aquatic Resources from St. FX University and in 2014 earned a diploma in Environmental Engineering Technology for Water Resources from Nova Scotia Community College, where she served as Vice President Communication & Services on the Students’ Association.


Learning that there are people in the world - people in Canada - who do not have access to clean water answered that question; she decided to spend her professional life working towards resolving this problem. Her most relevant work experience in this field includes Project Assistant at Public Works and Procurement Canada for the Environmental Services Group, and Capacity Building Assistant for UNESCO in Jamaica helping build capacity for Water and Environmental Science in the Caribbean. She volunteered in an engineering lab for a Master’s Student at Dalhousie University, and in the International Ocean Institute to gain experience immediately following graduation.


Over the past decade Bridget has enjoyed the physical activity, the music, the history, and especially the social life surrounding swing dancing. Her hobby has taken her all over Canada and Europe and let her meet amazing people and grown personally along the way. Meanwhile, she has been giving back to her community, sharing her passion for dance an instructor, volunteer, and community leader for the organization (and global community).


Lindsay Anderson - Dartmouth, NS

Lindsay is currently a PhD student in civil engineering at Dalhousie Univers ity. She received her B.Eng in environmental engineering from Dalhousie in 2011 and finished her MASc in civil engineering at Dalhousie in 2013. Her MASc research focused on the evaluation of both conventional and alternative water treatment technologies for the removal of disinfection byproduct precursor material from Atlantic Canadian surface waters. Prior to starting her PhD, Lindsay was a Research Engineer at the Centre for Water resources Studies (CWRS) where she worked on several water treatment and distribution projects in Atlantic Canada.

Sarah Gilbert - Wickham, NB


sarah sm


Sarah Gilbert is currently a civil engineering student at the last year at the University of New Brunswick (UNB). She was born and raised in Saint John NB. From a young age she had an interest in drawing and building. Throughout her early school years she had always wanted to be an engineer. When she started at UNB in 2013 studying Civil Engineering she knew that had made the right choice. A particular course that sparked her interest was hydraulics and hydrology. Now in her last year she is choosing technical electives in water and waste water engineering. This specialization within the Civil Engineering field is something that she is truly passionate for and wish to continue onto a career in this field.
