Nominate someone for a Betty Urquhart Award

The nomination deadline for this year's award is Friday, March 15.

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.

Urquhart was one of the first employees of Fraser Valley College (now UFV) 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 who exemplifies her commitment to life-long learning and community.

Past winners of the annual Betty Urquhart award include Mission resident Tara Scheirer for her work organizing the Warm Zone, a temporary cold weather homeless shelter.
