Alumnus earns Hamilton World Citizenship Award

Alumnus Leo Johnson will be presented with the World Citizenship Award Oct. 8 by the Hamilton Mundialization Committee.

Johnson, an alumnus of Social Sciences, arrived in Canada in 2006 from war-torn Liberia.

In 2007, he co-founded Empowerment Squared, a non-profit organization aimed at cultivating stable environments rooted in peace, independence and self-sufficiency.

Johnson will receive the award at a ceremony at Hamilton City Hall at 6 p.m.
