Stinger Jaymee Shell to receive provincial honor

Concordia Stinger women’s hockey player Jaymee Shell will receive la Médaille du Lieutenant-gouverneur pour la jeunesse in recognition of her academics and community involvement on May 11.

Shell will receive the award from  Pierre Duchesne , the Lieutenant Governor of Quebec who is the viceregal representative in Quebec of the Queen Elizabeth II.

An exceptional young woman, Shell is an ambassador for Concordia University on and off the ice.

The fourth-year right wing from Dollard des Ormeaux, Que., is an Honours Exercise Science student with a 4.13 cumulative GPA. She was on the Dean’s List and was a CIS Academic All-Canadian in 2011, 2012 and 2013. She is on target to receive these honors again in 2014.

Shell is as devoted to the Stingers women’s hockey team as she is to her academics. She scored five goals and added six assists this season and was instrumental in leading the Stingers into the playoffs. She also represented Canada in softball at the Maccabiah Games last July.

She makes time for volunteer work and community activities as well. She organized the women’s hockey team’s volunteer work at the N.D.G. Food Bank and she was involved in Wellness Week at the university to name a couple. Shell is a member of Concordia’s prestigious Garnet Key Society.
