Ryerson student award created in memory of Charles Oberdorf
 
The late Charles Oberdorf, former coordinator of the Magazine and Web Publishing program at Ryerson University’s G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education, is being remembered by family and friends through the creation of an award in his name.

Fundraising is under way now for the award, which will be housed at Ryerson University. His family has made the first contribution, noted a release.

It is intended that an annual prize of $1,000 will be given to a student about to complete the Magazine and Web Publishing certificate. Students would be nominated by faculty and from among them the winner each year will be chosen "based on overall excellence and deemed potential for making the same kind of difference in the magazine and web publishing world in future as Charles made during his long career."

The hope is to raise more than $25,000 so that an annual award may be secured for the future. If more money is raised, more awards will be given, noted organizers. Donors will receive a tax receipt issued by Ryerson University.

Contributions may be made online, by cheque or credit card, or by mail.

Donate online here.
