June 1, 2021 - As part of the Bicentennial Celebrations, faculties, central units, associations, and unions were asked to nominate the Unsung Heroes in their department – the less-recognized faculty and staff who have walked the halls of McGill through the ages and who have greatly helped shape the community. We are honoured to report that two MURA members, Leo Kerklaan and Honora Shaughnessy, were included in the first cohort of Unsung Heroes for the week of June 1, 2021.
