Wall of Honour
In May 2007, the College of Education launched an Alumni Wall of Honour to recognize the success of many of our alumni. The Alumni Wall of Honour is part of the Heritage Corner located on the second floor of the College and is one of the legacies of the College’s 80th anniversary celebrations. Recognizing that several alumni of the College of Education have succeeded in a variety of fields, the Wall will represent this by honouring five different alumni annually. When you are visiting the campus, we hope you have a chance to visit the College of Education’s Heritage Corner on the second floor of the College.
If you wish to nominate someone for 2016, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
