|Glenn Beatty Award|
Glenn Beatty was a participant in the CAD, CAM, CNC contests and gold medal winner in the 1997 Ontario Technological Skills Competition and then progressed to the Canadian Skills Competition held in Red Deer, Alberta for another Gold medal performance that same year. Following his outstanding performance at the skills competition, at both the provincial and national level, Glenn was hired by ATS Automation Tooling Systems in Cambridge, Ontario.
Grateful for the opportunity given to him and the impact that it had on his life, Glenn returned to Skills Canada – Ontario in 1998 as a volunteer.
In January of 1999 we lost Glenn in a motor vehicle accident, representing a tremendous loss to the organization, the community and to all those who knew him.
As a tribute to Glenn, Skills Canada – Ontario presents the Glenn Beatty Award annually to a volunteer, or volunteers, who embody the dedication and passion for Skills Canada – Ontario that Glenn had.
|Dick Hopkins Award|
In a technological world, there is nothing more important than ensuring that the next generation is well prepared to survive and thrive, into the future. This requires dedicated enthusiastic and motivated technology teachers. It requires teachers who care, who can inspire students and who excel in teaching technology.
Dick Hopkins was such a teacher. Dick Hopkins was a technology educator at Napanee and Sydenham high schools and Queen’s University Faculty of Education. He exemplified the energy and enthusiasm of a great technology educator who inspired a generation of teachers and students.
A hard working technology educator, Dick continually asked his students to push the envelope in order to do great things. Dick was a champion of community-based projects, such as a motorized bed for bedridden patients at a local hospital.
Dick was also a champion of skills competitions, encouraging his students to challenge themselves by showcasing their talents to the community and to the world. He vigorously promoted the skilled trades as career choices for his students. At Queen’s University, Dick was an admired master teacher, inspiring a generation of new technology teachers who are now working all over the province.
Dick passed away suddenly in October 2002. In honour and remembrance of our friend and colleague, the Ontario Council for Technology Education (OCTE) and Skills
Congratulations to the following previous recipients for inspiring their students to pursue their passions and for setting such high standards:
