Algonquin College Student Support Services (SSS) regularly recognizes staff who exemplify the College Core Values through their work, their initiatives, and their efforts in making a difference. During the SSS staff retreat last month, Algonquin College Residence General Manager, Sophie Galvan, and Residence Services Manager, Nicola From, were recognized with awards for “Making A Difference” for their respective roles in supporting the Minto Fire Emergency Response.
When presenting Sophie and Nicola with the award, Algonquin College Director of Student Support Services, Shelley Styles, said, “The commitment of these two women to service Algonquin College as well as their students is unparalleled and they should be honoured for their commitment which continues to this day.” Sophie and Nicola worked tirelessly for a month, including weekends, to support the Minto Fire evacuees, all while student move-out and summer operations turnover were taking place. Sophie and Nicola both commented that the awards were a testament to the commitment of the residence team at Algonquin College, as everyone on staff played a role in assisting the displaced Minto residents.
Algonquin College Residence is professionally managed by Campus Living Centres.
