The following is background information on the Memorial Awards.

 Carol Condon Memorial Award

Carol was a graduate of the Practical Nursing program in 2004. Carol had dedicated her nursing career to those she had loved and lost. Within six months of graduating, she died suddenly as the result of a car accident. As a mature student, Carol possessed great determination to join the nursing profession and to ensure a secure future for her young family. She had a tremendous sense of humour that did not waiver regardless of the challenges she faced while pursuing her education. She had a generosity of spirit and was a friend to everyone she met. Her loss is felt deeply within the nursing community, by her classmates and friends, and by her family.

Keith Tufo Memorial Award

Keith Tufo was a graduate of the Recreation Leadership program. He was a gentle and compassionate man, well remembered for his steady and reliable leadership and unfailing support to others.  While raising a young family, Keith pursued his educational goals and his commitment to learning and community service provides an inspiring legacy.  Keith’s positive, caring influence touched students and faculty within the program, as well as a circle of family and friends that includes members of a basketball league who honour his memory.

Louise Ferren Memorial Bursary

Louise was a valued member of the RPN community at PRHC for over 35 years.  Louise advocated for the profession and fought for the recognition of RPN skills within the workplace.  She encouraged and promoted ongoing education and skill development and was a mentor to her peers.  Louise was an executive member of the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 1943 for over 25 years and worked tirelessly to promote the values of union participation and involvement.  She demonstrated passion and commitment in her role as an RPN/Operating Room Technician and is greatly missed by her nursing peers and the members of CUPE.
