Every year the Faculty of Continuing Education holds a special event to express appreciation to our instructors, advisory committees, curriculum partners, students and staff. This year’s event was May 23 in the Ross Glen Hall.
A reception started off the evening, with an opportunity for everyone to meet, mingle and network. It was followed by an award ceremony recognizing long service instructors and staff, teaching award recipients and scholarship students.
Gerry Law, 92, was recognized for Exceptional Service as a founder of the Transitional Vocational Programs who has served on the TVP Advisory Committee for over 30 years. Gerry’s family and friends were there to celebrate with him.
Certificates were awarded to recognize over 50 instructors and companies for 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years of service. Not all recipients were able to attend the ceremony due to the heavy rain.
Scholarships (l-r): Carly Piercy (Massage Therapy Entrance Scholarship), Melissa Gerbrandt (Lucy Award, Pat & Stu Gauthier Memorial Scholarship), Sarah Blenkin (TVP Class Valedictorian), Nureen Velji and Murray Fairs (Pat & Stu Gauthier Memorial Scholarship)Eighteen staff members were also commended for 5, 10, 15 and 25 years of service. Congratulations to everyone who was recognized at CE Appreciation – we really do appreciate everything you do to make a difference in our learners’ lives.
