Alumni Awards a success


Thank you to everyone who helped make our inaugural Alumni Awards a tremendous success. We have always said the university is strongest where it matters most, and the inspiring life stories of our two award winners are strong evidence of that  fact. We are proud to honour Alumni Leadership Award winner Eric Jolliffe and Alumni Excellence Award winner Mading Ngor. They are both inspiring members of the Royal Roads community who are making  meaningful change in their communities. We  received very positive feedback from members of the community on the power and impact of the event and look forward to further strengthening these important relationships.   There was significant media interest in the Alumni Awards with features in the Times Colonist, the Goldstream Gazette, the New Westminster News Leader and New Sudan Vision. Mading also did interviews with CBC’s All Points West, CHEK and CFAX. If you did not have the opportunity to attend the awards celebrations or convocation, you can still hear Eric and Mading speak on our livestream channel at the links below:Leadership in Action featuring Eric JolliffeConvocation – afternoon ceremonyVoices for Freedom featuring Mading Ngor You can also read stories about our award winners on our website:Speaking out for freedomLeading from the heart We welcome your feedback on the awards.

If you know of someone who should be considered for a future award please nominate them.
