“I wanted to be part of a small and close-knit community, with the opportunity to get very involved, while receiving a great education.”
The University has not disappointed. Spinney, a recipient of the Bell Scholarship — Mount Allison’s most prestigious entrance award — is studying science and has taken up a full plate of extracurricular activities.
She plays field hockey, intramural volleyball, and is involved with Health Care Outreach and Global Brigades, which sees students travelling to Honduras with medical professionals to offer services in medical, dental, public health, water, architecture, and micro-financing.
Spinney, a graduate of Rothesay Netherwood School from Charlottetown, PEI, is also involved in her residence house council, is a note taker and exam scribe, and volunteers at the Sackville Memorial Hospital and S.M.I.L.E.
In high school, Spinney served as head prefect and co-president of her student council and varsity field hockey captain. She also volunteered with the Special Olympics and Big Brothers/Big Sisters.
