2000 Winner - Winifred Wadasinghe-Wijay
AFTER 27 YEARS of working above and beyond the call of duty, including taking
the Society’s accounting and payroll department from the dark days of adding
machines to more modern methods of number crunching, Canadian Geographic accountant
Winifred Wadasinghe-Wijay, who retired this September, has earned
more than the standard gold watch. Wadasinghe-Wijay is this year’s winner of the RCGS Camsell
Award for outstanding service to the Society. But she won’t be gone for long: after a vacation
abroad, she plans to return as a volunteer for the Society's programs.
