LEGACY AWARDS NIGHT IS NOVEMBER 16 AT THE VICTORIA CONFERENCE CENTRE. Co-chaired by UVic supporters Murray and Lynda Farmer, the annual gala recognizes the outstanding achievements of alumni, professors and Vikes athletics.

This year’s Distinguished Alumni award winners are: Allen Halverson, BEd ’77, a PE teacher at Ballenas Secondary in Parksville, who offers unique training in eco-tourism and adventure travel; Eric Jordan, BFA ’93, co-founder of PureEdge Solutions, a secure software firm that started at UVic; Ian McDougall, Victoria College ’56, a jazz trombonist whose career includes more than a dozen recordings with Rob McConnell’s award-winning Boss Brass band.

The Alumni Award for Excellence in Teaching goes to Nursing Prof. Gweneth Doane, who considers herself a learner as much as a teacher—one way that her approach to teaching is so effective.

UVic Sports Hall of Fame inductees are: Al Morrow, national women’s rowing coach and an early leader of UVic’s rowing program; swimmer Jon Kelly, BA ’90, seven-time CIAU gold medalist and 1986 Canadian university swimmer of the year; Debbie Scott, BEd ’82, the great track and field and cross-country runner who had 26 Canadian titles and a stunning victory in the New York Mile; and the 1984 Women’s Field Hockey team, whose CIAU championship was the first of 10 for UVic, making it the most successful Canadian university sports program.

More than 400 university supporters attended the Legacy Awards last year, helping to raise funds for scholarships and athletic awards.

Tickets are available from the Alumni Services office or online at alumni.uvic.ca/events.
