AVC faculty and staff were rewarded for their achievements and dedication at two events held at UPEI recently.

On May 4, the UPEI Faculty Association and the Office of the President sponsored the annual Faculty Recognition Night, which honours faculty members for excellence in teaching and scholarly achievement. Dr. Juan Carlos Rodriguez-Lecompte received a UPEI Merit Award for Scholarly Achievement, and Dr. Cora Gilroy, a Hessian Award for Excellence in Teaching. Both are with the Department of Pathology and Microbiology.

UPEI's annual Presidential Recognition Awards of Merit and 25-Year Service awards were presented to staff and faculty at a ceremony on Wednesday, May 11. The awards, created by UPEI President and Vice-Chancellor Alaa Abd-El-Aziz, recognize outstanding performance and dedication to students and the community—on campus, provincially, and globally.

Marven MacLean, operations manager of AVC’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital, received a Presidential Recognition Award of Merit for Exemplary Service. This award is presented to a UPEI employee who has demonstrated outstanding service and/or who has made significant contributions to the university community beyond that normally expected for his/her position.

Robert Doiron, the porter at AVC, received a Presidential Recognition Award of Merit for Campus Spirit, presented to a UPEI employee who has fostered a sense of excitement on campus and promoted fellowship, goodwill, and belonging within the University community, by supporting and promoting UPEI.

Receiving 25-year Service Awards were Laurel Fisher, Companion Animals; Eleanor Irving, Health Management; Karen Roche, Office of Academic and Student Affairs; Dr. David Speare, Pathology and Microbiology; and Dorota Wadowska, Electron Microscopy Lab.

Congratulations to all award recipients!
