Vaughn MacDonald receiving from Peter Dare a certificate commending him for courage under fire during the 2003 GGE Student Technical Conference. Being a novice presenter, Vaughn was nervous to begin with. Then a TV camera, from Rogers Cable, invaded his space, circling, pausing, dipping, and generally getting up close and personal. Vaughn, however, neither batted an eyelash nor sprung a drop of perspiration. Having survived that ordeal, he will cruise through life with ease! (Photo: Terry Arsenault, 2003-March-26)
