Bench naming rights on offer at donor recognition reception

Donors who attend a reception May 24 in recognition of their support for the Annual Giving Program will be entered into a draw for a unique door prize – naming rights to a commemorative bench on the UWindsor campus.

“We are very excited about this unique opportunity,” says development officer Mona Dosen. “It ties in directly with this year’s theme of campus beautification and the winner can choose to honour a department, special event or family member.”

Campus secretary remembered as caring colleague

Vice-president research Ranjana Bird says her secretary Judy Gagnon was a dedicated employee of the University of Windsor as well as a caring and compassionate individual. Gagnon died April 14 during a family vacation.

“Judy was my dear friend and I will miss her greatly,” Dr. Bird says.

Gagnon started work for the University of Windsor in 2001 as secretary to the clerk of the senate and moved to a clerical assistant position in January 2002. In June 2002, she began working as secretary to the director of finance before moving to the office of the VP research in 2005.
