“It has been a real highlight and honour to work with the various past and current members of the Web Team over the last 3+ years. I remember people commenting on what a difficult task I took on within SGAC when I first started as the Web Co-coordinator. Nonetheless, the Web Team, including others who are not currently a Web Team member such as Chantelle Dubois, Shreya Santra, Temidayo Isaiah, Faizan Muhammad and Kiran Tikare, took on the challenge, put out the fires, and went about modernizing our entire web infrastructure. Today, the website and our web-based work tools are the backbone and the virtual office building for SGAC, playing a continued vital role in supporting the vision and mission of SGAC. It has been a privilege to be part of this and thank you SGAC for recognizing the work we do. ”
