Ryerson continuing education student Angela Walcott is the recipient of the first-ever Terri DeRose Memorial Award in Circulation Management, presented last night at Ryerson's Chang School Annual Awards event in Toronto. The award is presented by the CMC Circulation Management Association of Canada, and CMC president Tuppy Blair was on hand for the honours. She reports: "Angela was so grateful and excited to win!  Both Gerry DeRose and Stephanie DeRose, Terri's widow and daughter respectively, were with me last night on the stage and they were extremely pleased to have been included. I am really happy that the CMC is able to not only honor Terri's memory but also feel the gratification of helping someone enhance their education." The award honours DeRose's significant contribution to the circulation management profession as vice-president of consumer marketing at Transcontinental Printing and recognizes excellence in a student who has completed Ryerson's Magazine Marketing and Circulation course. DeRose died of cancer June 7, 2007, age 56.

On the local front North Island Publishing’s much loved circulation manager Rachel Debling (recently married to become Rachel Crocker) has left us to pursue a career in the fitness industry. Thanks for your hard work and best of luck!
