The Carol Wong Volunteer Appreciation Award is awarded in honour of a former UTC President and Club Manager. Carol was a UTC member from the late 1970s, President of UTC in the years 1986-1988 and was Club Manager in the years 1989-1990. Carol's tenure was marked by tremendous growth in the membership of the club, expansion of its facilities and introduction of a wide array of programs appealing to members of all calibres and interests.
Perhaps even more memorable was Carol's cheery and entertaining personality which along with her arm-twisting resulted in an extremely strong and active bevy of volunteers. This volunteer tradition at UTC has been critical to the ongoing vibrancy of the Club. So it is only fitting that the Volunteer Appreciation Award is named in honour of such a significant contributor.
In recent years Carol has turned her attention to other pastimes, and threatens a return as tennis teacher of her grandchildren.
