UFV student among recipients of BC Community Achievement Award

Sukhi Brar of Abbotsford to receive honour on April 25 in Victoria

An Abbotsford student is among the 25 recipients of the BC Community Achievement Awards.

Sukhi Brar, a University of the Fraser Valley general studies student convocating in June, is the former president of the university’s Student Union Society (SUS).

She led the first all-female executive team to govern and serve their 9,000 members.

In this role, she assisted with launching services like the Gender Equality Centre, PrideUFV, and a full-service food bank operation.

Brar also developed the 2017-2020 UFVSUS Seeking Reconciliation Strategic Plan and co-developed the school’s Prevention, Education and Response to Sexualized Violence policy which was adopted by the board of governors last year.

Brar also serves as co-chair of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Abbotsford-Mission Relay for Life.

The BC Community Achievement Awards honour individuals whose dedication contributes to the health and well-being of the province.

Recipients will be honoured at a formal ceremony on April 25 at Government House in Victoria.

Each recipient will receive a certificate, and a medallion designed by B.C. artist Robert Davidson.
