Selwyn House Old Boy Keel Scruton 2015 has been selected by the Macdonald Branch of the McGill Alumni Association as one of seven recipients of the Gold Key Award, in recognition of his contribution to extracurricular activities at Macdonald Campus throughout the last year.
A former Business Operations Committee member and current VP of Finance for the Macdonald College Student Society, Keel assists the committee in overseeing the financial operations of the student society. In these roles, he has carried out a detailed analysis of the MCSS budget and says he is always looking to improve the efficiency of spending. To that end, he created a new club-funding system that reduced the time required for MCSS to process club budget requests by 50 per cent, while also reducing the society’s budget deficit to $5,000 per year, down from $50,000. When he’s not dealing with finances, Keel acts as the voice of the Macdonald Campus undergraduate student body on the Board of Governors.
