These awards acknowledge and celebrate the outstanding contributions of staff who work in service of either the President’s Office, the Division of the Vice-President & Provost, a Vice-Presidential Division (where the Vice-President is a member of Simcoe Hall Vice-Presidents), or the Office of the Governing Council.

This year’s recipients are:

Ronald Atkins, Manager, Caretaking Services, Facilities & Services – Building & Grounds
Prasanna Nanayakkara, Lead Cook, Red Seal, Food Services
David Newman, Executive Director, Student Experience
Tania John Pihl, Associate Director, Advancement Professional Development and Placement, Office of the Vice-President University Advancement

Award recipients will receive a gift, and when public health guidance allows, they will be presented a framed certificate at a celebration with Vice-Presidents or their designates and nominators.

Please join me in congratulating this year’s recipients and thanking them for the extraordinary work they do for the University.
