Delivering Exemplary Service with Care

Stephanie Rozzi, an Adult Learner Academic Advisor, was recently recognized by one of her students, Thomasena Downes-Mitchell, for delivering exemplary service with care.

Downes-Mitchell met Rozzi five years ago when the adult student decided she wanted to continue her education. Rozzi helped her navigate from a Red River College business diploma to a UWinnipeg Bachelor of Business degree. 

Downes-Mitchell was so grateful that she sent flowers and a card to Rozzi, thanking her for their shared journey.  She also wrote a post on Facebook to underline the important and meaningful role Rozzi has played in her education over the years.
