The Night of Legacies
Chancellor’s mentor: Chancellor Ron Lou-Poy gave a heartfelt introduction to distinguished alumnus Lawrie Wallace at the 2003 Legacy Awards. Earlier, guests purchased prize balloons from student Lauren Westmacott and other volunteers.

MORE THAN 400 UVIC SUPPORTERS GATHERED IN NOVEMBER for the 2003 Legacy Awards at the Victoria Conference Centre. They came to celebrate 10 new Distinguished Alumni Award winners (one from each decade since the founding of Victoria College in 1903), the recipient of the Alumni Award for Excellence in Teaching, and four new members of the UVic Sports Hall of Fame.

Chancellor Ron Lou-Poy offered a poignant dedication to Lawrie Wallace, recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award for the decade of 1923-33. Wallace—esteemed community leader—was a high school counsellor when he steered Lou-Poy toward a university education.

Thanks go to all of the event partners, sponsors, suppliers and volunteers who helped to make the Legacy Award such a success. Make plans to attend the 2004 Legacy Awards in November and help build even more support for scholarships and athletic awards. The Legacies are online at alumni.uvic.ca/legacyawards.
