Friday, March 5, 2021

 

Congratulations to all the 2020 Service Excellence Award nominees and recipients. Today’s spotlight is on Mike Antunes from the Department of Physics who was recognized with a Service Excellence Award in the Individual category.

Here is what Mike’s nominator had to say:

“Mike Antunes, our senior electronics technologist has always made a significant difference for all the students taking the physics advanced lab courses, but this past year highlights his great efforts and involvement to the success of the labs.

This year he single-handedly prepared the home kits, delivered and/or shipped them to students before the Fall 2020 term started. It was not an easy and straightforward process, but his patience and extensive knowledge was instrumental for each student’s success.

During the lab sessions students were working on many different experiments at the same time and Mike provided help for every experiment and made possible what we first thought would be impossible.

His heavily invested contribution to this task made it possible for our physics labs at Carleton University to stay true to our vision: ‘keep the experiential learning and provide students every tool possible for their success’.”
