VANCOUVER – British Columbians are encouraged to nominate those who make a difference in their communities for the 19th annual Community Award program, announced today by BC Achievement Foundation chair Anne Giardini.
“A key part of what we do at BC Achievement is to recognize some of the many outstanding individuals who provide exceptional service to communities across the province,” said Giardini. “Now, more than ever, we are grateful for those who lead the way, showing all of us the importance of strong, engaged and connected communities. Communities where we care for each other. No one says it better than 2021 Mitchell Awardee Amber Anderson. I join with her in encouraging everyone throughout British Columbia to #nominatenowbc.”
“We need to continue the great work we are doing. We need to lead by example and know that our actions affect many lives. It is important to acknowledge excellence in the community, to bring attention to the good work being done and inspire others to do the same. Our work is far from over, what we have accomplished has made a huge impact on our communities. We need to put our heads down roll our sleeves up and continue to make a difference to motivate and inspire change.” 2021 Mitchell Awardee, Amber Anderson C.C.C.
