    Excelling on the court and in the community

    As an undergraduate nursing student at the U of L, Kim Veldman (BN ‘14) excelled in the classroom, on the court and in her community. 

    A first-team Canada West all-star and two-time winner of the Pronghorn Female Athlete of the Year Award, Kim was also just the second women’s basketball player in Horns history to win a CIS major award when she earned the Sylvia Sweeney Award for excellence in basketball, academics and community service.

    “Being a Pronghorn had a huge effect on my life,” she says. “The busier I was, the better grades I got.” Off the court, Kim received hands-on experience working in rural hospitals during her practicum and gave back to her young basketball fans as a volunteer reading buddy. 

    Today, she’s a graduate student at the U of L and is working toward a new goal: inspiring the next generation of nurses. “The ability to help other students become great nurses is a dream of mine, and I would like to become a clinical instructor of nursing students.”
