2019 Recipient: Nancy Green
In 1994, Nancy started working at Simon Fraser University in a temporary capacity with various departments including the Faculty of Education. This led to a continuing position as the Secretary to the Director of Professional Programs in 1997, and she has served as the Assistant to the Associate Dean, Academic since Septmber 2013. Nancy has had a long and distinguished career providing support, service and leadership in various capacities within the Faculty. The list of her many achievements over the past 25 years is impressive and long, and her exceptional service and dedication are highly valued. She works consistently with positivity, care, respect, trustworthiness and goodwill. In particular, it is very clear by everything she does that Nancy understands "it's all about the people." She is gifted in letting us know that we matter and is often the first to celebrate our milestones or offer support during our difficulties. It is very hard to quantify the sustained impact that the actions of a person with strength of character have on a place. Nancy's contributions to a positive workplace ethos are felt every day throughout our Faculty.
