The 2017 Annual Support Staff Recognition Award goes to...

No comments :
Darryl Hopkins! This award recognizes Darryl for being an outstanding support staff member & for his extraordinary contributions to the University. He has worked for the Libraries for over thirty years and is honoured with the award that is "designed to recognize the outstanding members of the University of Alberta Support staff and the extraordinary contributions they make to the University."

Below are a few quotes from Darryl's nomination documentation that I am sure were noted by the Adjudication Committee:

Without him, I believe the Libraries would suffer greatly, he is always ready and willing to help, regardless of the task.

Darryl always has a smile on his face and is happy to help with anything, regardless of how early in the morning it is. Everyone knows that they can rely on him for the many tasks that fall into his lap.

Whether it’s repairing furniture, making sure our locks work, or taking the lead on Cameron fire-drills Darryl always takes the time to do a first rate job and does so while treating those around him with respect.

And, a fitting summation:

Darryl may be a jack of all trades, but he is a master of personable and nice!

We would also like to acknowledge our colleague Ina Kwon, at Bibliographic Services, on her service award. Congratulations Ina on 40 years of service! See the full list of those celebrating milestones at the University of Alberta.
