HEATHER McMULLAN MEMORIAL ENDOWMENT LEADERSHIP AWARD


Heather McMullan was a loving wife to Rick, devoted mother to Kylie and Chelsea and a dedicated student who believed that education is a lifelong endeavour.

Among other important roles, Heather served two terms as an elected councillor on Langley Township Council. However, it wasn't until she graduated in 2002 with her Bachelor of Social Work degree from UFV that she found her true calling: acting as an advocate for children in need. Heather worked as a child protection social worker with the B.C. Ministry of Children and Families and then with the Aboriginal Children and Family Services team where she worked until a few months prior to August 1, 2009 when she lost her brief but courageous battle with cancer.

In early 2009, Heather's colleagues selected her to receive the Social Worker of the Year award for her dedication and tireless efforts on behalf of the children she was assigned to protect and assist.

Heather possessed true leadership traits and a passion for fighting for the underdog, which she has instilled in her two daughters. She was an excellent student, as well as a community-minded volunteer who served on many boards and committees.
