Following are 2009 inductees into the Alumni Honour Society
In celebration of the University’s 35th Anniversary in 2002, the University of Lethbridge Alumni Association established the Alumni Honour Society to recognize the achievements of successful alumni within the global community. The individuals inducted into this prestigious group serve as role models through success in their vocation, outstanding community service or superior accomplishment in their avocation.
Chris Burton (BEd ’74, DPE '78) is a champion of youth who has dedicated her life to teaching, coaching and giving back to the community.
Pronghorn Pride is more than a catch phrase for Mathematics and Computer Science faculty member Dr. Dennis Connolly – rather it’s a way of life.
Connolly, the very deserving recipient of the 2009 Senate Volunteer Award, exemplifies the spirit of giving back to the community, both at the University and beyond. The annual award is given in recognition for volunteer work on behalf of the University of Lethbridge.
The RSVP deadline for Dr. Dennis Fitzpatrick's Appreciation & Recognition Dinner is fast approaching as the University of Lethbridge celebrates 10 years of unprecedented growth in research.

To honour Fitzpatrick, a Friday, June 5 Appreciation & Recognition Dinner has been organized. The RSVP deadline to attend this dinner is Friday, May 29.
Tickets for the dinner are priced at $40 each. To attend, RSVP to Bette-Jo Kulak at 403-329-2200 or e-mail to email@example.com
