Athletes, educators, entrepreneurs and entertainers are among the eight University of Windsor grads who will be honoured for their successes early in their professional careers during the University of Windsor Alumni Association’s annual general meeting on Thursday, November 15.
This year’s recipients of the Odyssey Award are:
A UWindsor business grad is hoping his alma mater can help get him named Canada’s young entrepreneur of the year. Michael Kaye (MBA 2008) is under consideration for Profit magazine’s FuEL Awards; public voting will count for 20 per cent of the final score.
“If I am selected in the top 20 entrepreneurs it will result in tremendous publicity for Alexa Translations,” the company he runs with fellow Odette grad Gary Kalaci (BSc 2005, LLB 2009, MBA 2009), says Kaye.
The Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce honoured several members of the UWindsor community Wednesday at the Ciociaro Club during its annual Business Excellence Awards presentations.
Lancer women’s basketball coach Chantal Vallée’s Athena Award and Board of Governors member Fouad Tayfour’s Believe Windsor Essex Award had been announced prior to the formal event.
