Please join in offering warm wishes to Maggie Hobbs, who is retiring from Humber College after 40 years of service and dedication. Maggie started working at Humber in 1979 with the Student Government, managing the student pub where she increased daily revenues by 32 times over a seven-year span.
In 1985, Maggie began working for the Council of Student Affairs as Director of Operations, a role that saw her directly supporting the Student Government for 13 years. Over the next 11 years, she directed the College’s awards, alumni and orientation activities and began to establish what has become her signature of highly organized, professional, large scale events.
In 2009, and for the last 10 years, Maggie has perfected that signature supporting events in Student Success and Engagement, Planning and executing award/scholarship ceremonies, and supporting various units on campus with large scale events such as the President’s Breakfast and Convocation. During this time, she has also played an integral role in the practical experience of countless students in the Public Relations certificate program as an advisor during their fall and winter term event management projects.
Beyond the 40-plus incredible years of accomplishments, service, and commitment, Maggie is known as an honest communicator, a key contributor, a living archive of knowledge about Humber, a caring colleague, and an exceptional creator. Her attention to detail ensured that a stole was never twisted, a flower was never out of place, a speaker could be heard, a recipient received an award, and a guest was well fed. Maggie has had an incredible impact on Humber College and a countless number of staff and students who have wandered our halls.
We welcome members of the Humber community to join Maggie and her family in a celebration of her career and contributions on September 23, 2019 in the Humber Room. The reception will begin at 2:30 p.m., with remarks to follow.
