Kwantlen alumni honoured

Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Stephanie Cadieux among four former students honoured

Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Stephanie Cadieux was among a quartet of former Kwantlen Polytechnic University students honoured last month with a 2013 Distinguished Alumni Award.

Cadieux, who is minister of children and family development, earned her diploma in marketing management from Kwantlen in 1994.

Others honoured in a ceremony at Eaglequest Golf course Oct. 24 were RCMP Staff Sgt. Baltej Dhillon (diploma in criminology, 1988), sustainable fashion company co-founder and owner Maryanne Mathias (bachelor of arts in applied fashion design, 2003) and Chris McCue, president of McCue Environmental Contracting (diploma in environmental protection technology, 1994).

The recipients were selected by the institution’s alumni association from a pool of nearly 43,000 graduates. The annual award recognizes alumni who have enhanced the reputation of the university through exceptional career, public and community service; athletics; arts and culture; or academic achievements.

“All four winners have made significant contributions to our communities locally or globally, and KPUAA is proud to celebrate their successes and recognize them for their achievements,” Jeff Norris, executive director of the KPUAA, and KPU’s chief advancement officer, said in a statement.
