As Okanagan College prepared to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its start (the B.C. Vocational School opened its doors in September 1963), we sought to bolster the ranks of already-honoured luminaries and contributors by acknowledging even more people – 50 of them – who contributed to the development of the College, who strengthened the connection between College and community (regional, provincial, national or global) through their efforts.
When the ad hoc volunteer selection committee sorted through the nominations as part of the preparations for the 50th anniversary, they quickly came to realize that while there was a rich collection to inform the list of 50 People Who Made a Difference, there were many more who could – and should – be recognized for their contributions to the institutions and service to the community.
To keep an ongoing tribute to the 50th anniversary and the people who have shaped Okanagan College, the nomination process will remain open until May 30, 2013, and you are invited to nominate deserving individuals who may have been missed off the original list (posthumous nominations are accepted.)
The list of additional nominees will be reviewed, and the additional people for acknowledgement will be chosen by an ad hoc committee of current and former employees of Okanagan College and Okanagan University College. To view the original list of 50 People Who Made a Difference, click here.
DEADLINE FOR ENTRY
All entries must be received by midnight, May 30, 2014. The names of those who will be acknowledged can be found here. Completeness and thoroughness of the nomination will impact the panel's selection.
