TORONTO - Women's volleyball athlete Carli Yim was one of five Ryerson students that was recognized by the university this past Monday, March 19 for their outstanding community and campus contributions, as she was awarded the OVPS Student Leadership Award.

The Student Leadership Awards provide staff in the Vice Provost, Students division with an opportunity to recognize students that have taken on the challenge of being a leader by acknowledging their growth and celebrating their achievements. Student leadership comes in many forms and is acknowledged not only at Ryerson, but in the student's communities. Recipients of this award will have shown a high level of commitment, lead by example, shown initiative and made a strong contribution to their community within Ryerson and beyond.

The fourth-year radio and television arts major has worked as a social media marketing assistant for the tri-mentoring program, where she helped develop innovative ways to market within social media networks while holding other responsibilities in the organization. The Markham, Ont. native has also been a Rising Rams mentor over the past two seasons while serving as team captain for the Rams.
