UBC Engineering pays tribute to outstanding teachers in British Columbia through the McEwen Family Teacher Recognition Award. The award celebrates teachers who go above and beyond teaching the curriculum to ensure students succeed not just academically but personally.
Short-listed nominees for 2012 include: Mike Clift, R.C. Palmer Secondary School, Richmond; Brad Harwood, Hugh McRoberts Secondary School, Richmond; and Brian Outerbridge, South Delta Secondary School, Delta.
The award was established through a $36,750 donation by Vancouver biomedical engineer Jim McEwen (BASc ’71, PhD ‘75) who believes strongly in the importance of celebrating our teachers.
