John Macdonald, engineering technologist in civil engineering, is this year’s winner of the Agnes Kaneko Citizenship Award, recognizing staff who have served with distinction and made contributions to the faculty’s mission above and beyond their job descriptions. The Quality of Student Experience Award, recognizing a staff member who has made significant contributions to the quality of student experience in the faculty, went to two recipients this year: Lesley Mak, student success specialist and Track One liaison, and Annie Simpson, assistant director of the Institute for Leadership Education in Engineering and co-ordinator of the Engineering Leaders of Tomorrow. Ryan Mendell, manager of mechanical and industrial engineering’s machine shop, is the recipient of the 2011 Emerging Leader Award, honouring a staff member who leads by example and demonstrates potential to assume a more senior leadership role. The Influential Leader Award, given to a staff member who demonstrates exemplary support for the faculty’s endeavours, has made significant and sustained contributions to the faculty and inspires others to realize their potential, was awarded to Nelly Pietropaolo, director of student services and external relations for civil engineering. The team of Bruno Korst, manager of the hardware teaching labs group in electrical and computer engineering, Steve Miszuk, faculty director of facilities and infrastructure planning, and Joe Wong, senior applications developer in electrical and computer engineering, was the winner of the Innovation Award, given in recognition of staff who have developed an innovative new method, technology or system, made innovative improvements to an existing technology or system or created an innovative solution to a problem. Winners of the staff awards were honoured April 27 during the annual Celebrating Engineering Success event.
