SALTISE awards Dawson DG and John Abbott Academic Dean
Dawson’s Director General Richard Filion and the Academic Dean of John Abbott College Erich Schmedt were honoured at the SALTISE annual conference 2017 with the Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of their support to SALTISE in “exceptional ways that have been complementary and timely.”
In the citation to pay tribute to both administrators, SALTISE writes: “What makes [them] particularly special to SALTISE is their openness to those from outside their own institutions. This willingness to entertain ideas that extend beyond their College has made it possible for SALTISE to grown within the provincial network. Over and over again, both men have demonstrated their support of the SALTISE vision. For this, we are forever grateful!”
