Congratulations to Spencer Sealy, Biological Sciences, the 2009 winner of the Jamie Smith Memorial Mentoring Award in Ornithology, which was presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society of Canadian Ornithologists in Edmonton on August 21, 2009.

Award winners must have contributed to the training and fostering of Canadian ornithologists, and must be recognized by those trained as being a consistent motivator as well as being diligent in pushing students/colleagues to excel.  They must demonstrate a passion for the discipline that is transferred to those who are trained, and they must instill a sense of integrity in those who have been mentored.
