The University of Toronto has honoured two alumni from the Department of Chemical Engineering & Applied Chemistry with Arbor Awards. The awards recognize outstanding voluntary service to the university.
“On behalf of the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to our many alumni and friends who offer their time and expertise to benefit our students and support our Faculty,” said Dean Cristina Amon. “We value their tremendous contributions and take great pride in the recognition they have received through the Arbor Awards.”
The following alumni were recognized at the annual ceremony:

In the last two years, he has guided and instructed first-year students in their Engineering Strategies & Practice coursework and mentored students interested in pursuing a career in water technology.
