UBC Engineering recognized Susan Hunter-Jivung, physics teacher at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary School in Surrey, with the 2013 McEwen Family Teacher Recognition Award. Created to highlight the contributions high-school teachers make to students and communities through their mentorship, the award celebrates those who go above and beyond teaching the curriculum to ensure their students succeed academically and personally.
Nominated by first-year UBC Engineering student Wyatt Gronnemose, Hunter-Jivung organizes and leads numerous extra-curricular events that foster the development of high-school students and contribute to their long-term human potential.
Two finalists recognized alongside Hunter-Jivung are North Surrey High School teacher Jeanne Tang and Steven MacKenzie of George Elliot Secondary.
