Dr. Darlene Steven's influence is still felt in Lakehead's corridors and classrooms. The former nursing professor, who passed away in 2014, continues to change Lakehead and Northwestern Ontario for the better.
Memories of a life well lived are what inspired Alan Boyce to establish an award at Lakehead in his wife's honour.
Many thanks to North American Palladium for their donation of $20,000 in support of Superior Science at Lakehead University. Their gift plays a significant role in expanding their outreach efforts throughout Northwestern Ontario and the enhancement of their summer science camps, girls club programming, community events and Indigenous outreach. Thank you for sparking our future leaders' interests in science, engineering and technology!

It was a January day in one of the remotest corners on Earth and Shirley Symington was in her element.
