September 2022 "G" Thanks Winner Abby Weagant

Congrats to our September “G” Thanks Winner! Abby Weagant!

Mark Colvin wrote in his kudoboard nomination: Humongous and tremendous shout out to all of our Housing Team for moving in 5,100 students over the Labour Day weekend. Specifically, I wanted to thank Abby Weagant for stepping up and organizing the whole weekend and working tirelessly. With our facilities manager being off suddenly due to a long-term leave, Abby stepped up, took charge of the entire weekend and I don’t think slept over the full 3 days. SO KUDOS to Abby for stepping up and being AMAZING!

Learning that she was this month’s “G” Thanks winner, Abby reacted: First, thank you to Mark for taking the time to submit the nomination – what a nice surprise! I’d also like to extend a thank you to everyone else that helped make Move In Weekend a success this year. It was a campus-wide (and city-wide!) team effort and I think we were able to get our on-campus residents moved in with a welcoming energy and community that represents the University of Guelph. Move-In is one of the first on-campus experiences that the students living in residence have, and I’m proud to have been a part of making it a smooth and positive one this year.

A virtual celebration was held for Abby.

Mark commented: Abby always does all these great things. [Regarding campus move-in] I don’t know how she did it. Everything was perfect to the last detail. She even scheduled the weather to be perfect!

Congrats Abby and thanks for all your great work!
