Mr. Darran Fernandez with ES Connected! He is the lucky winner of a $25 dollar gift card to either the UBC Bookstore or food services. Unfortunately Mr. Fernandez was unavailable for comment at press time.

The selection committee had the difficult task of picking a name from all of your amazing suggestions. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Think your name was better? Want Darran to share his winnings with you? Sound off in the comments.
