Nominations Sought For Outstanding UVic Education Grads

The faculty of education is soliciting nominations of outstanding UVic education grads for the 2000 Distinguished Education Alumni Awards. The awards were established in 1997 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the MacLaurin building (home of the faculty of education), and to recognize the contributions of education alumni (undergraduate and graduate programs) who have distinguished themselves as educators in B.C.
Three winners are selected each year by a committee of alumni and faculty and three scholarships are awarded in their names to students who are deemed to have best served the goals of education during the preceding year.
Anyone -- not just alumni -- may submit a nomination. Nominations must include a letter and brief profile of the nominee and be sent by Aug. 31, 2000, to the office of the dean of education, University of Victoria, P.O. Box 310 STN CSC, Victoria, BC, V8W 3N4.
The awards will be presented on Nov. 7, 2000, at a special evening reception.
For further information, contact the dean's office at (250) 721-7757,or e-mail mnelms@uvic.ca.
