In classic University of Alberta Green and Gold this hat is for one of the most impactful people to ever walk the U of A campus. Dr. Robert Steadward (Steady) was one of my first year professors at university.  If you've never heard of Dr. Steadward, try this Wikipedia link. The founding president of the International Paralympic Committee, he was the driving force behind the Paralympic games being recognized and held in conjunction with the Olympic games. He created the Steadward Centre for Personal and Physical Achievement, has received the order of Canada, the Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal and countless other accolades.

Despite all that he has accomplished I remember him the most for his approachability, his genuine care for you as a student and person, and his willingness to share golden nuggets of knowledge and wisdom. Catch him outside the classroom, however, and you'd see him in his cowboy boots and western shirt. A country boy at heart I remember many conversations around farming and country life with him. So this one's for you Dr. Steadward, and thanks.
