Northern Lakes College long-time employee, Edith Mackenzie, was the recipient of the prestigious 2019 PEMAC (Plant Engineering and Maintenance Association of Canada) Sergio Guy Award in recognition of her high standard of excellence and service to students, instructors, and industry partners. The award was presented before her peers and colleagues at PEMAC’s annual MainTrain Conference, hosted in Edmonton from September 16 to 19.

The Sergio Guy Award recognizes the efforts of an individual who has made significant contributions to the profession and PEMAC, and acknowledges the outstanding achievements of a professional who exemplifies excellence in promoting and representing PEMAC, the profession, and members.

PEMAC President Susan Lubell comments, “As any of the participants or instructors who have participated in the program will attest, the level of service, responsiveness, and attention to detail in the program offering is not only exemplary, it is remarkable. Edith and her colleagues engage high-level instructors and support the development of their instructional skills to meet a high standard of excellence in the service they provide. Edith is an instrumental member of the Northern Lakes College team that works tirelessly to meet PEMAC requirements and the needs of students.”

 “Working with our partners at PEMAC and with program instructors from across the country is so rewarding. My amazing colleagues at the College share in this success and are instrumental in this achievement,” comments Mackenzie, Senior Liaison with Continuing Education & Corporate Training.
