Prince George, B.C. – Three people are set to be honoured by the Alumni Association of UNBC.

UNBC alumni Gina Layte Liston – currently the Director of Public Works for the City of Prince George and Sarah Foot – a long time volunteer and former UNBC staff member – will receive Distinguished Alumni Awards. Tim Swanky – a photographer – earns an honorary designation at the 2016 Alumni Awards Reception on May 26.

Foot will receive the Community Service Award while Layte Liston will receive the Professional Excellence Award. Swanky will be made an Honorary Member of the Alumni Association.

“Both Gina and Sarah exemplify the high degree of passion our graduates have for their professions and their communities – taking the lead to make Prince George an exceptional place to live,” says UNBC President Dr. Daniel Weeks. “As a professional photographer UNBC has featured prominently in Tim Swanky’s portfolio.”

Swanky is the 22nd honorary member to be recognized since the Alumni Association began handing out the award in 1997. The first Distinguished Alumni Awards were handed out in 2012.
