Alumni Award of Merit, Dr. Ivan Smith Award recipient 2011

Ted Hessel, BA’67 has earned a place in the Alumni Association’s records as the recipient of the 2011 Dr. Ivan Smith Award. This fitting tribute is bestowed to the man who has painstakingly culled endless sources for Mustang artifacts to add to the collection at the J.P. Metras Museum. Ted’s tireless service to Western has been realized through his active volunteer career with the Alumni Association, the W-Club, and as a member of Senate. 

Ted has served his country through his posting with NATO as a fighter pilot in Europe, his community as a Vice-Principal, teacher and coach and his alma mater through decades of commitments both large and small. Ted is passionate about the Mustangs and can often be seen clutching a new find for the museum, polishing the display cases or cheering for the current roster of athletes in Alumni Hall or TD Waterhouse Stadium. His advocacy for sport history at Western is unsurpassed. Ted has worked closely with university archivists to ensure that these legends will inspire future generations of Western students and student-athletes.  The museum serves as a learning environment for current students and a place of remembrance for alumni. The Dr. Ivan Smith Award is Alumni Western’s highest honour
