In addition to being recognized for her years of service, Mary Clablassi was also presented with the inaugural Emily Tjimos Award for Service Excellence, established in recognition of Emily Tjimos, a staff member in the Dean’s Office who passed away in 2015.

“It is wonderful that Mary was the recipient of this award as she more than exemplifies all of the qualities that Emily brought to her work”, said Lyndon Martin, Dean of the Faculty of Education.  “It is also great to see so many of our staff honoured for their important and valued contributions to the Faculty over many years.”
