UFV seeks nominations for Betty Urquhart Community Service award

BettyUrquhartUFV is once again looking for unsung heroes.

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

Betty Urquhart was one of the first employees of the university and believed strongly in volunteering and giving back to the community. While Betty passed away in 1995, UFV keeps her memory alive by honouring a person or group exemplifying her commitment to life-long learning and community.

Some past winners of the annual Betty Urquhart award include:

The award is presented as part of the university’s annual convocation ceremony in June. Recognizing community volunteers at convocation provides inspiration for students to contribute and give back to their community. This award is part of UFV’s continuing commitment to changing lives and building community.

The deadline for this year’s nominations is Friday, March 11.
