The Greg Wilkinson Memorial Award was established by the family of Greg Wilkinson.  This award is presented to a Monsignor Fraser College graduating student who has demonstrated an exemplary commitment to student engagement.  This student will have participated in numerous co-curricular activities while still achieving above-average attendance in all classes.  The successful recipient will have earned the respect of staff and peers for their genuine love of school and for their loyalty to the Monsignor Fraser alternative program.
 
An annual award of no less than $500 will be awarded to a student from Msgr. Fraser College who meets the above criteria.   The school staff will maintain a perpetual plaque at the school. The selection will be made by the principal or designate in consultation with the school staff. 
 
The family of Greg Wilkinson is to be invited to the graduation ceremony to present the award.
 
The family will provide a cheque for $500 each year, payable to the TCDSB, to be deposited to the school’s outside agency account.  Family and friends have been invited to make further donations to the “Msgr.

Greg Wilkinson Biography

 

Greg Wilkinson (1957-2016) began his career in education with the TCDSB in 1982. He taught History and Geography at both Brother Edmund Rice and St. Joseph’s Morrow Park.  He was Department Head of Social Sciences at SJMP before assuming a position as Vice-Principal in 2001.  He was an administrator at Pope John Paul II, Bishop Allen and Father Henry Carr before joining the Monsignor Fraser College community.  Greg was a hands-on, visible VP who worked diligently to improve attendance and student engagement at the school.  He established positive relationships with students, staff and the community.  Although Greg retired from Monsignor Fraser in 2013, he returned periodically to assist.
Greg was very dedicated to his family: his wife Jo (a retired TCDSB secondary school teacher), his daughter Andrea (Probation and Parole Officer with the Ministry of Safety and Corrections) and her husband Matthew Pitula; his son Alex (a lawyer with Hughes Amys LLP) and his fiancée Cristina Schieda.  Greg’s grand-daughter Charlotte was born in March, 2016.

In his free time Greg enjoyed golf, bowling, politics and the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was extremely talented in home renovations and his handy-man skills were in great demand.
