David Brigden (University Communications), President Andrew Petter, Jason Margolis (University Communications) and Hans Gorsoyr (University Communications) made the overcast day feel sunny with their bright jackets and smiles.

This time the sun couldn’t make it, but that didn’t matter. The 2019 President’s Employee BBQ on July 10, 2019, attracted a happy, hungry crowd to the south side of the Academic Quadrangle courtyard. They came for the food, stayed for the conversation, and posed for pictures along the way. Take a look …

Jennie Blankinship (acting director, Office of Indigenous Education), Gary George (officer for community relations, Office for Aboriginal Peoples) and Ron Johnson (pro tem acting director, Office for Aboriginal Peoples), didn't let a few raindrops dampen their spirits.

Vince Wong (senior director, advancement services, University Advancement) took a break from his burger to pose for a photo.

Behraad Bahreyni (associate professor, mechatronic systems engineering) was bun-ready in the burger lineup.

Elizabeth Elle (vice-provost and associate vice-president, learning and teaching) and Sandi de Domenico (associate vice-president, human resources) served up sodas and smiles to staff.

Deanne Esdale, Jill Eddy and Tony Botelho from Student Services' Career and Work team displayed interview-worthy smiles in the burger lineup.

Wade Parkhouse (vice-provost and associate vice-president, academic) and Joanne Curry (vice-president, external relations) posed picture-perfect.
