Employee Recognition AwardsA March 7 reception honoured recipients of the Employee Recognition Awards.

Awards reception celebrates employee contributions

Receiving an award for her excellent service to students humbled Melissa Robinet, secretary for the Master of Applied Computing program.

“The best part of my job is helping and mentoring students to succeed during and after their program,” she said. “I feel like a proud mom once I see them cross the Convocation stage, and just to know that I had a little part in their academic journey is fulfilling.”

Robinet was one of 15 individuals and three teams honoured during a reception March 7 conferring Employee Recognition Awards.

Giovanna Abraham, who received the Wellness Champion Award, called it “an honour” to have been part of the event alongside colleagues.

“My mission is to help people feel healthier and happier and look forward to continuing to help support our University community in their health and wellness journey so they can become the best version of themselves,” she said.
