2009 President's Distinguished Achievement Awards
The 2009 President's Distinguished Achievement Awards were announced by Fanshawe President Howard Rundle on September 25, 2009.
Distinguished Teacher Award
Brian Lee - Photography
Over the past 37 years, Brian has seen Fanshawe from almost every angle - as a student, technician, teacher, and
administrator. No matter his position or its responsibilities, he has always delivered his best for students. His influence
is evident in several programs, including the innovative Media Theory and Production collaboration between Fanshawe and
UWO. He also helped manage Fanshawe's switch to digital photography and has supported the industry through his leadership
of various provincial and national photography boards. Thank you, Brian!
Distinguished Part-Time Teacher Award
Dan Brodbeck - Music Industry Arts
As a partner in London's Emac Studios, Dan brought valuable knowledge and experience to the Music Industry Arts program.
He also provided his students with access to recording studios where they could put classroom theory into real world
practice. Dan is noted for his commitment to teaching and for breaking ground with exciting new ideas. He achieved
exceptional marks on his IFS surveys and was a very popular teacher throughout his time with the College. Congratulations,
Distinguished Team Award - 2008 United Way Committee
Fanshawe aimed high and hit impressive targets with its annual United Way campaign last year. In fact, the 2008 campaign raised a record $72,627 to support people in need in our community - a result that reflects very well not only on the College, but on our tireless United Way Committee. Their leadership and enthusiasm turned a bright spotlight on the 2008 campaign, inspiring staff and students to organize a variety of relatively small events that produced an exceptionally grand total. I can't thank them enough for their hard work. Well done!
Distinguished Staff Award
Dining Room Technician - Tourism & Hospitality
Bonnie has been a big part of Tourism & Hospitality and food service at Fanshawe for over 20 years. She is the model
of service excellence, providing students and staff alike with a perfect example of professionalism, courtesy, and
initiative. Bonnie has given her time to countless Fanshawe events including various galas and fundraising programs. Her
hospitality is devoted equally and genuinely to everyone who visits Saffron's. Bonnie, thank you for all of your hard work.
Distinguished Program Award - Personal Support Worker
Like all successful college programs, Fanshawe's Personal Support Worker program works because it addresses industry needs and prepares students to thrive in their jobs. The program is offered in five different locations, producing graduates who have a wealth of clinical placement experience to go with their exceptional classroom training. Over 90% of PSW graduates find jobs within six months of leaving Fanshawe - a ringing endorsement of our program's relevance and quality. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this remarkable program!
