To mark the University of Waterloo's 50th anniversary, University of Waterloo's Alumni Council established the University of Waterloo 50th Anniversary Alumni Awards to honour outstanding alumni for their commitment to the university.
Nominations were accepted from alumni, University of Waterloo faculty and staff, and the council selected 50 alumni who exemplified extraordinary citizenship to University of Waterloo through activities like volunteering, mentoring, involvement with committees, boards or panels, philanthropic support or advocacy.
The recipients were honoured at a formal awards dinner on Friday, September 28 at Chatterbox Farm, home of University of Waterloo President David Johnston and his wife Sharon. Each award recipient received a limited-edition print of Fifty: Upholding Imagination, a piece created specifically for this occasion, by artist Paul Roorda, BA '88.
University of Waterloo is extremely grateful for their commitment, dedication and support to this great institution.
