  1. There is another Mohawk connection in the list of nominees. Susan Olynyk is the wife of long-time professor Peter Olynyk, also know as Truss Worthy of the Popsicle Stick Bridge Building Competition. Susan has brought the Bay Area Science fair to our campus and undoubtedly has encouraged many students to attend Mohawk College. Kudos to Susan Olynyk.
