This month, the department proudly celebrated several undergraduate student as winners of the 2012 Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Award.
The Cressy Award, awarded to just 183 UofT students this year, recognizes students in their final year of study who have made outstanding extra-curricular contributions to their college, faculty or school, or to the university as a whole.
Three of our winners were nominated by the department:
- Zoya Gavrilov (nominated by Sven Dickinson and Francois Pitt) was honoured for her work as the founder and President of the UofT Undergraduate Artifical Intelligence group, and her continued dedication to enhancing the student experience through the Computer Science Student Union and the UofT Russian Student Association.
- Johan Harjono (nominated by Karen Reid) was awarded a Cressy for his incredible contribution to the department, including work with the First-Year Learning Communities program, and commitment to departmental outreach and Humanitarian Free and Open Source activities.
- Antonio Miceli (nominated by Steve Engels) was recognized for his leadership and volunteer contributions to the department's video game design initiatives, including a memorable presentation at the past year's game design showcase and overseeing the department's team at a weekend-long Great Canadian Appathon event.
Congratulations to Zoya, Johan, and Antonio on this tremendous achievement!
