President- Shannon Stemper

Hello, I am Shannon Stemper, the 2021-2022 President of the HSA! I am a U4 Honors History major. I do not have a specific focus- I love history and want to cover as many topics as I can! My priority is to foster an inclusive, representative, and equitable environment for all McGill history students to flourish. This will be accomplished through open communication, accurate representation of the student body, and increased opportunities for participation in the HSA.
