Call for Nominations: Brian L. Desbiens Community Service Awards


Peterborough ON – (Oct. 3, 2017) – Do you know someone who has made an outstanding contribution to the community? Fleming College is currently seeking nominations for its award program that recognizes dedicated community service.

The Brian L. Desbiens Community Service Awards are given out annually – one to a Fleming College employee (internal) and one to a member of the public (external).

The awards were created to recognize citizens who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to, and concern for, their community, country or beyond. Through volunteer work and within their career these candidates have exceeded expectations, putting their ideas and skills to practical use for the benefit of others.

Please note, candidates for the internal award must be employees of Fleming College while candidates for the external award can be any citizen who lives in Peterborough, Haliburton or Northumberland counties, or the City of Kawartha Lakes, which are all served by Fleming College’s campus locations. Members of the public are encouraged to nominate candidates for either award.

Nominations will be accepted starting Monday, Oct. 2. All nominations must be submitted by 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 20, 2017. The awards will be presented later this fall.
