“I felt flattered that a student felt strongly enough to write such a wonderful essay about me and that I had such an influence on her,” said Graham about finding out Hilson had nominated her and she had won.

Hilson’s 500 word essay described that Graham “possessed the remarkable ability to make each student feel uniquely valued,” as well as having a “teaching style [that] transformed mundane projects into engaging tasks.”

Graham said she is also honoured to make “such a huge difference in a Ross’ student’s life with the gift of a full scholarship.”
