All in a Week's Work

Last week was eventful for two members of our department. As reported in The StarPhoenix on October 21, Professor Janice McKinnon has been named as one of this year's recipients of the Saskatchewan Order of Merit. This is the most prestigious award in the province and is awarded for major contributions to the province and its residents. Then, on October 24, Professor Bill Waiser became our department's only Doctor Doctor, when he received a D.Litt. at Convocation. The honorary degree recognizes his long record of research and publication.

Congratulations to Dr. McKinnon and Dr. Dr. Waiser!
