Since 1986, Marcel Carpenter has demonstrated outstanding dedication to both SAIT and SAITSA; since 1990 Marcel has been an instructor and coordinator for SAIT and an advisor and mentor to the SAITSA team. This award was first established in 2001, and while 2016 marked Marcel’s official retirement from SAIT, his spirit and dedication to the SAIT and SAITSA communities will continue to be recognised through this award. This award is presented to a SAIT staff or instructor who has demonstrated outstanding dedication to SAITSA and the SAIT community. The award intends to recognize those in the SAIT community who contribute to enhancing the community spirit on campus by being actively engaged in the promotion of SAITSA services, programs, operations and elections.
Any SAITSA or SAIT community member may nominate an individual who they feel demonstrates exceptional commitment to collaboration, networking, community building and/or mentorship with SAITSA. The nominator must provide an impact statement that briefly explains the impact that the nominee has had on the SAIT and SAITSA relationship.
The ASC will take into consideration the number of years the nominee has been involved with SAITSA, whether or not they have previously received the award, and request testimonials from SAITSA staff who have worked closely with the nominee. If required, the nominator will be contacted for further information.
