With a great mustache comes great responsibility

Posted on Tuesday November 25, 2014

SUDBURY – A Cambrian College School of Business professor will be shaving his 30-year-old mustache in memory of Marisa Certossi.

The Cambrian community was shaken after Certossi, a professor in the public relations program, died of cancer earlier this year.

A bursary has been established in her name, with more than $11,000 raised to date.

The person who donates the most to the School of Business Movember fundraiser will have the honour of shaving Robert Dabous’ mustache. All proceeds from the fundraiser go to the bursary.

“Marisa was a dear friend and trusted colleague who passed away from cancer this summer,” Dabous says. “Raising funds for a bursary in her name during the month of Movember is a great way for all of us to honour her memory.”

Joan Campbell, dean of the School of Business, says Cambrian staff and students were deeply affected by Certossi’s death.

“Marisa was one of the School of Business faculty leaders who loved teaching and supporting student success,” she says. “The Marisa Certossi Bursary is a great way to keep her memory alive, while doing what she loved – helping others.

“I commend (Robert Dabous) for doing his part to raise money,” Campbell adds.

Donations to the Marisa Certossi Bursary can be made online through the Cambrian College Foundation website by selecting ‘Marisa Certossi Memorial Award.’

Guests and members of the media are invited to attend the great shave. Dabous will speak briefly about Marisa Certossi and the contributions she made to Cambrian College and the community at large.

Date: Monday, December 1
Time: 3 p.m.
Location: Main foyer, Barrydowne campus
