  • and Thomas Brzustowski, a significant contributor to research and development in Canadian engineering and science.

Carleton also honoured three individuals with Patrick O’Brien High School Teaching Awards:

  • Sandra Warren of St. Joseph Catholic High School;
  • Danielle Davidson-Séguin of St. Peter Catholic High School;
  • and Tracey Friendship, who teaches at Nepean High School.
