Alumna honoured as community activist

UWindsor alumna Antonella Ciampa (BA 1989, B.Ed 1990, M.Ed 2008) is among the community leaders who will be recognized by the Windsor and District Labour Council at an awards reception Thursday, June 15.

The Gary L. Parent Labour Activist Awards, named for the council’s former president, honour volunteer work promoting environmental, social justice, human rights, and other causes.

Ciampa, an elementary teacher with the Greater Essex County District School Board, serves as first vice-president of the Greater Essex Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario and chaired the council’s organizing committee for local commemoration of the Day of Mourning for workers killed or injured on the job.

“One of my favourite quotes is ‘Inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more’,” Ciampa says. “This holds true for the students I have taught and the teachers that I have guided in their education journey.”

She is being honoured in the category for advocacy for women and will receive her award at a celebratory reception Thursday, June 15.

Also earning recognition is Kevin Johnson, team lead for web communications in Public Affairs and Communications and secretary-treasurer of Local 1393 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, for advocacy in public services.
