Congratulations Julia Ker! Julia was recognised for her work by winning the Vice Chancellor’s 2013 Award for Customer Service at a special awards dinner last night, beating off stiff competition from three other shortlisted nominees! She does so much work on LACES/Staff LACES and coordinating the Language Cafes. We are very grateful to Julia for all the work she has done on LACES in the last couple of years. Without her, the network would not be the success it is today. If you'd like to congratulate Julia in person, why not join us at the Language Cafe this evening at 17.00 in the George Edwards Study Area - Level 1 of the Learning Centre?
