Two dedicated computer science alumni volunteers were recently recognized with the U of T Arbor Award for their service to our department and the Faculty of Arts & Science:
Rebecca Friedman (Dreezer) (MScAC 2013)
Since graduating with her Master’s degree, Rebecca has contributed her time as a mentor in the Career Mentorship Program, volunteered in Backpack to Briefcase events, and presented several guest lectures.
Richard D. McDonald (BSc 1981)
Richard is a valued alumni mentor. He has also been a mentor in the Career Mentorship Program and Arts & Science Entrepreneurship Program and enriched the experience of countless students as a volunteer at many Backpack to Briefcase events.
"My mentor was amazing. She actually got an Arbor award for all of her work. It inspired me. She was so helpful and gave such good career advice and such good life advice," said Friedman.
Congratulations Rebecca and Richard!
