Nominations sought for UFV’s Betty Urquhart award

Do you know an individual or a group who has made the Fraser Valley a better place to live?

Do you know an individual or a group who has made the Fraser Valley a better place to live? Those people who make everyday contributions to their community but may not be recognized? Consider nominating them for the Betty Urquhart annual community service award.

Betty Urquhart was one of the first employees of Fraser Valley College (now UFV) and believed strongly in the values volunteering and giving back to the community. While Betty passed away in 1995, UFV keeps her memory alive by honouring a person or group who exemplifies her commitment to life-long learning and community.

The award is presented as part of the university’s annual convocation ceremony in June. Recognizing community volunteers at convocation inspires students to contribute and give back to their communities. It’s all part of UFV’s commitment to changing lives and building community.

If you’d like to nominate someone for the Betty Urquhart community service award, review the criteria and download a nomination form at , or contact Lori Ann Waites at 1-888-504-7441 (local 2614) or by email at .

Deadline for nominations is March 21.
