Kwantlen honours Delta graduate with Lieutenant Governor’s Medal

(METRO VANCOUVER, B.C.) Victoria Davis, a legal administrative studies graduate and Delta resident, has received the Lieutenant Governor’s Medal at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s 2009 Convocation ceremony held at its Surrey Campus.

Davis’ university experience at Kwantlen not only opened up new career opportunities for her, it also inspired her children to strive for excellence.

A mother of two, Davis came to Kwantlen a year ago to pursue an education to prepare her for a career in legal services. During her time at Kwantlen, she excelled in her studies, instilled a positive influence in the classroom and impressed her faculty with her work ethic.

In addition to being a full-time student, she maintained her commitment to her children as well as volunteer work in the community. She is currently a parent volunteer for the local sports teams in Delta and has volunteered for the Canadian Red Cross and the SPCA in the past. Now, she is proud to graduate from Kwantlen with a 4.23 GPA and receive the Lieutenant Governor’s Medal.

“My university experience this past year has been exceptionally rewarding. I am most confident now that I am able to carry out my commitment to my children, myself and continue to contribute to the community,” said Davis. In the future, Davis plans to further her education to become a paralegal and eventually attend law school.

On behalf of the Lieutenant Governor of B.C., a medal is awarded to a graduate studying a substantial vocational or career program of fewer than two years in duration. The student has not only excelled in studies, but contributed in a positive way to the life of Kwantlen or the community; and may have a faculty recommendation.
