Long Service Awards recognize decades of service from dedicated employees
Employees recognized for 10, 20, 30 and 40 years of service
Saskatchewan Polytechnic has become known as one of Canada’s top polytechnics – a success largely due to the commitment and passion of its employees. Every year, Dr. Larry Rosia, president and CEO, takes the time to recognize and celebrate employees who have provided 10 or more years to cultivating a learning environment that engages students and supports Saskatchewan’s economy. Here are just a few of those who were honoured this year.
Manager, Registration Services
Lorraine says she considers herself fortunate to work with so many great colleagues and mentors who have helped her learn and grow during her 40 years with the institution. Starting in the finance department as an accounting clerk, Lorraine took a position within the Test Centre to advance her skills and eventually landed in nursing as an administrative coordinator. She became the assistant registrar in Regina 12 years ago and has since been promoted to manager. When she isn’t out helping potential and new students discover their career dreams, Lorraine plays on a broomball team along with her daughter. This year, they won provincials and will be headed to the national competition in April.
Senior Technical Analyst, ITS
Robyne says she is happy that she has a job where she can learn something new every day – even though she’s been a Sask Polytech employee for 20 years. She is proud to work for an organization that provides its employees with opportunities to better themselves. She adds new employees shouldn’t be afraid to make mistakes at Sask Polytech, so long as they learn from them. When she isn’t at work, she aims to take full advantage of living at the lake and goes for long walks as often as she can.
Accounts Payable Clerk
Over the 40 years John has been working at Sask Polytech, he’s had a chance to live and work in three of our campus cities – Prince Albert, Regina and Saskatoon. He says he’s enjoyed the people he has worked with and out of all the positions he’s had, accounts payable is the one he enjoys most. His job has provided him with opportunities to see most of North America – 10 provinces and 50 states – China and Peru. As he begins to think about retirement, John has taken up scrapbooking photos from his adventures, doing yard work and taking care of his rabbits, Dorothy and Emma.
Congratulations to our many long-service recipients this year.
