Jim Jones, a former head of the ESL department at Mohawk College, is being honoured for his work.

The Teachers of English as a Second Language Association of Ontario recently named Jones its Distinguished Contribution Award winner for 2015.

Jones began his career in 1972 and was a Mohawk College administrator for close to 40 years.

He began his career delivering English language programs and was soon pioneering new programs such as the bridging to employment and workplace programming, the association said.

“It is seeing the positive impact of the learners you’ve influenced over the years that is most satisfying,” said Jones. “Here in the community of Hamilton, I still run into former students who have become successful as a result of the initial help they received as new immigrants in getting established through our ESL programs.”
