From the Western News article, written by Keri Ferguson:
Psychologist. Genius. Gentleman. Even, MacGyver. Kam Abado has been called a lot of things, but as network administrator for the Faculty of Social Science, he mostly just gets called. A lot. While providing hundreds of staff members, faculty and graduate students with technical support, Kam makes each client feel like they’re his only one. Lauded for his technical skills, patience, and sense of humour, “the pandemic brought all of those attributes to the forefront,” one colleague said, of Kam’s “heroic” efforts to keep everyone up and running. “Once again demonstrating, that without him, most of us could not teach or conduct our research.” Pandemic or not, Kam sets the highest standard for his work, ensuring every task is done in a timely fashion, with enormous attention, and a smile.
