Alex Houle is incredibly deserving of this distinguished honor for a multitude of reasons, but most notably her passionate and caring nature that has benefited all who work with her. She has done an amazing job of working through multiple difficult and taxing situations with her residents this year with great care and attention to detail. Alex is a positive academic role model for her fellow female engineering majors. She never ceases to be a bright spot in my day with her spirited greetings and shining smile. Alex is an integral part to the Maple team and it wouldn’t be the same without her!
