Recognition of Service … and a good time was had by all

August 24th, 2022

The large room in 3C.1 was dressed up in its finest to receive the 130 guests during the Recognition of Service reception and dinner. It was the largest gathering of its kind in Dawson history as the retirees from 2019-2022 were celebrated as were employees marking 25, 26 and 27 years of service.

The trend toward retirement truly showed itself as there were more than three times as many retirements, 101, as there were in the group marking the years of service, 33. The mood was light and convivial, and those in attendance were happy to reconnect after long absences due to campus shutdown or having taken retirement.

The last honouree to be presented with a gift and certificate was former Director General Richard Filion who retired in December 2020. He received a rousing introduction by Michael Goldwax, Chair of the Board of Governors, which was met with equally rousing remarks from Richard, who spoke of his admiration for the Dawson community, its spirit and its resolve, and to continue to fight the good fight for the benefit of our students.
