President of Alumni Association rewarded for dedication

In recognition of his giving spirit and dedication to Carleton, Gerard Buss, B.A./73, was named the Alumni Volunteer of the Year for 2004 – the first time this prestigious honour has been awarded.

President Richard Van Loon presented the award to Buss, who is currently serving his second term as President of the Carleton University Alumni Association, at a special luncheon during the Association’s Annual General Meeting in October. In making the presentation, Van Loon lauded the personal and professional commitment Gerard has shown to Carleton during his 15 years as a volunteer.

From his home in London, Ontario, Buss has been one of Carleton’s greatest ambassadors, representing more than 90,000 graduates at University and alumni events worldwide. He has also been instrumental in making a difference for current and future Carleton students, helping implement alumni programs such as the precedent-setting $2.5-million alumni pledge towards the Alumni Hall and Sports Centre, as well as the Alumni Giveback program for scholarships and bursaries, which has raised in excess of $30,000 for students.
