CPABC Past President Andy Yu has been honoured with a British Columbia Community Achievement Award in recognition of his professional and volunteer achievements, including his work to revitalize our association.
The BC Achievement awards celebrate British Columbians who go above and beyond in their dedication and service to others and who devote time and energy to making their communities more caring, dynamic, beautiful, healthy and unique. They inspire by their example.
These awards are presented by the BC Achievement Foundation, which was established in 2003 by the Province of BC. The Foundation celebrates excellence in community service, business, the arts and humanities.
The 2018 award ceremony and reception were held at Government House in Victoria on April 28th. Her Honour, Janet Austin, Lieutenant Governor of BC presented the awards. As one of the 28 recipients selected from over 150 nominations, Andy received a certificate, a lapel pin and a medallion to commemorate his achievement. Nominations were received from all corners of the province. Andy is the first person living with CP to given this award.
The citation read at the presentation referred to Andy’s example, passion and business acumen as part of his efforts to see all citizens achieve a “Life Without Limits”.
Congratulations, Andy, and thank you for all of your efforts to raise the profile of the CPABC.
