The name of the Donna Wari:so:se Lemay FAQ Awards refers to a former QNW employee who
passed away in the summer of 2018. Donna was an inspiring woman with her gentleness,
kindness, joie de vivre and generosity. She left her mark on our hearts and minds, and through
this annual awards we wish to continue to honor her memory and values.
