Richardsons presented with honourary degrees

For the past three days Scotiabank Place has played host to convocation ceremonies for Algonquin College, an Ontario college with campuses in the National Capital Region. On Wednesday, the tie between the Sens and the college was made a little bit stronger with accolades for Binghamton Senators coach Luke Richardson and his wife, Stephanie.

The Richardsons became the first couple to receive an honourary degree from Algonquin College for their work with youth mental health initiatives stemming from their organization, Do It For Daron, which is now in its third year.

From the Algonquin College's official release...

The couple formed a foundation called Do It For Daron (D.I.F.D.) to increase awareness and understanding about youth and mental illness, and to target early detection and intervention. The Foundation works with the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre to support new treatments, education and outreach programs, and to fund ongoing research. D.I.F.D. also partners with The Sens Foundation and local businesses here in Ottawa to raise money and direct funds that serve the families of children and youth with mental health challenges.

Sens TV was on hand for the degree presentation and spoke with the Richardsons after the ceremony.
