Director of Special Projects
Known as someone who “gets things done,” longtime staffer Donalda Meyers, director of special projects in the Faculty of Education, has been recognized with the 2017 Staff Achievement Award for Lifetime Achievement.
Meyers joined SFU in 1981 and has worked in the education faculty since 1990, where she has devoted her long and distinguished career to providing support, service and leadership in a number of different roles. Her keen work ethic and thorough knowledge of SFU operations have led to several secondments to other faculties or departments where she has embraced challenges with her customary vigor and goodwill. Most recently, she has overseen a $25-million renovation to the Faculty of Education building.
“She shows up for work every day and inspires those of us lucky enough to be around her,” says a nominator. “She makes everyone around her better, with a sunny disposition and the wisdom of someone who knows and cares deeply about service to SFU.”
