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!
