On Friday April 15, 2011 the daughter of St. James Time’s Editor, Shakira La Fond, received a leadership award at Saint Joseph’s College of Maine’s College Awards Ceremony. Leslie Rocheleau, an area coordinator at the college, presented Shakira with the award for Outstanding Club/Organization through the group Interhall. Shakira received the award for introducing the concept of card lock systems for the residence halls on campus. This card lock system has ushered in a new era of security for the current student population as well as those to come. To quote Ms. Rocheleau, “it has brought Saint Joseph’s College of Maine into the 21st century.” St. James Time's congratulates Shakira on this stellar achievement and wishes her the best on her upcoming commencement!
