2016 Momentum Awards

Each year, The Heights picks several individuals we feel have significantly shaped Boston College in the past school year. This year, we’ve picked a coach, a filmmaker, a group of activists, a student government leader, an associate athletic director, and leaders in entrepreneurship.

The Heights commends these trailblazers for having the strength to push the University to grow stronger, and for changing the campus we call home for the better.
