A luncheon Wednesday for UWindsor employees who are also graduates of the institution was a chance to say thanks to some of the University’s most dedicated supporters, says Patti Lauzon, director of alumni and donor communications.
“It’s always a nice opportunity for us to come together and celebrate our lifelong connections to the University,” she said. “It’s wonderful to have so many alumni working on the campus, with a history and appreciation of the place.”
About 130 faculty, staff, and retirees enjoyed lunch along with remarks from alumni association board president Jean Wright and UWindsor president Alan Wildeman.
“The University of Windsor is indelibly intertwined with you,” Dr. Wildeman told those assembled. “You have personally invested yourself in the mission of the University.
“You have not only worked here, but you have donated, volunteered, commiserated, debated, laughed, cried, maybe married, maybe divorced, celebrated babies, complained about administrators and snow … all with the University of Windsor as the backdrop.”
