Everyday Heroes for July 2018
For delivering outstanding lab-based learning to students, Fiona Winterton is a Mohawk College Everyday Hero. As the Lab Coordinator, Chemical and Mechanical with Mohawk’s Chemical, Environmental and Biotechnology Department, Fiona prepares instructional materials for lab courses, answers technical questions from students, staff and faculty and provides on-demand assistance in the labs. Fiona also purchases any materials required to run the labs or items that are needed to support faculty with special projects. She also ensures the labs remain in full compliance with provincial and federal safety regulations. With a spirit of professionalism and a commitment to collaboration, Fiona supervises student employees and is the first to coordinate and participate in departmental outreach events. Fiona was presented with her Everyday Hero Award in the lab by Associate Dean George Miltenburg (left), President Ron McKerlie, Lab Technologist Prabir Biswas and Vice President Academic Paul Armstrong.
