Who’s True Blue? Kelly Squier & Fefe Wong

The True Blue Award emerged from the most recent Speaking Up: Faculty & Staff Experience Survey. The results showed that feeling valued and recognized in the communities in which they work rated highly among employees.

The True Blue Award complements the recognition programs already in existence at the University of Toronto (U of T) and provides staff and faculty with an opportunity to recognize their colleagues in a more informal way. Award recipients are nominated by their colleagues for embodying U of T’s true-blue spirit.

Read on to find out why.

Kelly Squier“Kelly has had to provide the majority of the training to each of [our] three (new) employees. Each and every time she put in endless hours of training and created tools to help the employees succeed.

“All the while, Kelly’s work and professionalism on the job never waivers from top notch. She is always courteous to everyone and more than willing to assist anyone with anything. She doesn’t complain only smiles.

“Computer & Mathematical Sciences would suffer without Kelly being part of our team. She is and has always been pleasant and an absolute delight to work with and supervise. I am proud to have her as part of my team.”

“Fefe’s commitment to excellent service, her ability to pay close attention to detail (e.g., faculty leaves), and her awesome communication skills — never getting upset when we ask ‘dumb’ questions….

She clearly derives enjoyment from her duties and her enthusiasm has contributed to the fun working atmosphere on campus.”
