This past year, the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, presented 60,000 Canadians with The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. This honour was created to mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada, and was given to citizens for their significant contributions and achievements.
The Department of Computer Science is proud to recognize four faculty members who received this distinguished award:
- Stephen Cook: for his ground-breaking work in the fields of computer science and mathematics.
- Michelle Craig: for her service to the community, making sustained contributions to Canadians across geographic, socio-economic, age, and cultural boundaries.
- C.C. (Kelly) Gotlieb: for his pioneering impact, "leading Canadians into the modern age of computing."
- J.N. Patterson Hume: for championing "the field [of Computer Science] and inspiring several generations of students."
Congratulations, all, on this national honour!
