Every year, York University honours and celebrates the achievements of its dedicated employees ith the President's Staff Recognition A ards. The Faculty of Science is proud that staff member Carol Weldon received the 2016 Ronald Kent Medal (a arded in 2017). Weldon was an administrative assistant for the Centre for Atmospheric Chemistry (CAC) in the Department of Chemistry. She worked at York University for 35 years and retired at the end of 2017. She received the Ronald Kent Medal for her contributions in promoting and strengthening collegiality and the values and goals of York University. "To Carol this would be a lifetime achievement award," said Rob McLaren (Chemistry), who nominated her for the medal. "She has done a lot of service for us at the CAC and Department of Chemistry over the years. Quite frankly, she has been the face of the CAC for all these years, and we wouldn't have been able to do things we have done and have all the success we have had without Carol." Weldon was also recognized for her dedication to students and making them feel part of a community. "She's such a caring, warm person," said PhD student Zoe Davis, who conducts research in the CAC. "She's so organized and she brings this level of rare personality to that whole combination that has enabled us, as grad students in the Centre, to not just get a good educational experience, but also feel like we belong to a community."
