Betty Urquhart Community Service Award

   
  Betty Urquhart
 

The University of the Fraser Valley will present a Community Service Award annually at an appropriate university event to a group or individual who has made an extraordinary contribution to a community or communities in the University region.  In 1995 the Board of Governors agreed that the title of the award would incorporate the name of Betty Urquhart, one of UFV’s early employees and someone who had spent much of her professional career forging links between the institution and its community, especially in Chilliwack.
