UBC recently held an awards ceremony to honour achievements of seven influential alumni and community members.
Alumni UBC, which brings together UBC graduates and the university, organized its annual alumni UBC Achievement Awards ceremony on November 17. This year’s recipients included doctors, social justice advocates and computer programmers.
Karolin König, alumni relations coordinator at alumni UBC, said that the awards are a way to celebrate and recognize some of the most interesting and inspiring people at UBC.
“We honour seven members of the UBC community who have done extraordinary things through different activities and have connected to the university, as well as tying up to the larger local, global and international community to create positive change and affect people in inspiring ways,” said König.
