The Nipissing University Student Union (NUSU) and North Bay local business, SugarDaddy Cupcakes and Catering, today announced their partnership in recognizing the “Sweetest Student of the Week.”

The initiative will see students, community members, Nipissing staff and faculty able to nominate students for being good student leaders or kind people.

John and Nathan Serran from SugarDaddy Cupcakes and Catering presented a certificate and four cupcakes to Michaela Adams, the first winner of “Sweetest Student of the Week.” The cupcakes were North Bay and school-themed, sporting the Nipissing colours of green and blue.

Adams was nominated by her friend Emily Prevost after she saw a posting for nominations online during Frosh Week. Prevost says she thought of her friend  Michaela immediately, adding that Adams is deserving of the recognition.

The initiative will continue throughout the year and any Nipissing University student can be nominated.

NUSU Director of Communications, Sarah McGowan said, “The goal is to highlight students who are making a change that maybe some people don’t get to see. No matter how small the act it can make the biggest difference.”
