Loyalist College was named the winner of the 2009 United Way Spirit Award for Employee Workplace Campaign (250+ Employees), at the United Way of Quinte Campaign celebration last night.
“I was pleased to attend the United Way of Quinte Achievement Celebration and to accept, along with a number of employees, students, and alumni from the College, the Employee Workplace Campaign Spirit Award for 2009,” said College President Maureen Piercy. “Congratulations to everyone who helped make this year’s campaign so successful, in support of our communities.”
The campaign was launched in October with “Casino Loyale” – an event organized by the post-graduate Public Relations students at the College. Other events included a pancake breakfast supported by Quinte Sunrise Rotary; a book sale organized through the College bookstore, and a Run for United Way organized by students in Police Foundations.
“Loyalist College is pleased to support our community United Way campaign,” commented President Piercy. “I want to thank the many individuals who helped in this year’s success; the students, alumni, faculty and staff and our partners in the cafeteria and the bookstore, for their efforts. I would especially like to thank the Student Government, the Alumni Association, and students in Professor Kerry Ramsay’s Public Relations class for “Casino Loyale”, and in Professor Larry Cook’s class for their “Police Run” organized in support of the United Way.”
