Former College President Judith Morris honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award
SARNIA, November 30, 2021 – Judith Morris, former President & CEO of Lambton College, has been honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award on behalf of the Ministry of Colleges and Universities.
Morris joined Lambton College in 2002 as Vice President Academic & Student Success and was named President & CEO in 2012, a role she held until her retirement in June 2021.
As a leader, Morris was known for fostering innovation and entrepreneurship among faculty, staff, and students, and was a vocal champion for equality and accessibility in education. A strong advocate for experiential learning opportunities for students, she was instrumental in linking industry and education through college collaborations with businesses.
Jill Dunlop, Minister of Colleges and Universities presented the award to Morris during the annual Higher Education Summit, which took place at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Toronto on Monday, November 29. Morris was one of four other exceptional individuals honoured by Dunlop for making lasting and meaningful differences to the college system.
“I would like to extend my deepest congratulations to these leaders who have shown commitment and promoted excellence to advance Ontario’s world-class college system,” said Minister Dunlop. “When individuals act as ambassadors in this way, they not only support students, colleges and local communities, but the economic strength of the entire province.”
The Minister’s Lifetime Achievement Award was created in 2005 to recognize those who have made enduring contributions to Ontario's college system throughout their career.
