Shout-Out is a new peer-to-peer recognition program that allows you to informally give a shout-out to someone in your faculty, department or unit, or in the broader Dal community, who has helped you or your team in some way — big or small, during the past year.
Each day in Today@Dal for the next couple of weeks we'll be featuring just some of the many shout-outs submittted. It will take us some time to feature them all, so make sure to visit the Shout-Out site in myDal for all of the latest kudos and thanks!
Submit your own "shout-out" on myDal.

Andrew Martin Faculty of Law
When we first started working remotely at the beginning of the pandemic, Andrew Martin, a faculty member in the Law School, reached out to me and ever since then we have been in contact, offering support to each other. I truly appreciate Andrew's kind gesture and it has helped so much with the isolation of living and working alone!

Colin Richardson has gone above and beyond in our renewal project at the Dalhousie Arts Centre. His dedication and fortitude have not gone unnoticed.

Thank you Colin from your colleagues, Dalhousie University and all of your community friends and partners!

A HUGE acknowledgement to the Faculty of Science's communications team, who worked diligently this past year to make the lives of students and our community rich and engaging. Many new online programs, initiatives and events were developed throughout the pandemic and it would not have been possible without their continued efforts, determinations and work ethic. Well done!

I wish to nominate Julie Barry from the School of Nursing for her valuable insight and support to the founding committee of the Dalhousie Nurse Practitioner Journal Club. The thoughtful and very wise advice provided by Julie has enabled our committee to move our proposal forward very efficiently.
Teresa Walsh Rowe School of Business, Faculty of Management
Teresa is one of the best kept secrets at Dal. She's been at Dal for more than 30 years, yet she remains very humble about her work. Always professional and kind, efficient and caring, she's our "go to" staff for many requests, often made last minute. Most importantly to me, she welcomes EVERYONE the same. Consistent throughout all these years, she's certainly one of the individuals that exemplify to me the best that Dal has to offer. Teresa, I am so grateful to have you as a colleague. Thank you for being the wonderful human being you are!
Mike Pauley Communications, Marketing and Creative Services
A big thanks to Mike for his assistance in ensuring that the recordings of our Board of Governors meetings are available on the Board website in a timely fashion following meetings. It's not in his job description, but we couldn't do it without him! Thanks, Mike.
Rebecca Parker, Michelle Mahoney and Lisa Sillito Faculty of Law
The willingness and efficiency in which Michelle, Rebecca and Lisa have taken on new tasks while working remotely has been greatly appreciated. Michelle had only been with us for 8 months when the pandemic started and Rebecca joined my team in the fall and has yet to meet many of the faculty and staff in person. Lisa stepped in to assist my team during the the pandemic as well on a part-time basis. Thank you all for your hard work.
Lauren Brierley Dean's Office, Faculty of Health
Lauren has an exceptional ability to remain calm at all times! This past year especially has been unprecedented in terms of recruitment and all else related to HR. She manages it all with pride and grace and always with a smile (during remote working a smiling emoji :) ). I rely on Lauren immensely - she is my right arm and I appreciate her so much.
Hillary Titley School of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Faculty of Health
Hillary did a great job converting our School's paper-based application process to a completely virtual format. It was a lot of work and we greatly appreciate your efforts.

With a lot of dedication, hard work, adaptability, and a little bit of patience, what we accomplished together as a team to support our faculty and students during a challenging time was nothing short of amazing.
