Three inspiring alumni from Brandon University will be honored with awards from the BU Alumni Association at the annual Homecoming dinner and soirée next weekend.

All are invited to attend Homecoming, which is being held earlier this year to take advantage of back-to-school momentum and nicer September weather.


As Brandon University celebrates some outstanding women students for International Women’s Day, each of those being highlighted will also receive an art memento created by a previous honoree.

“We are so excited to unveil a new tradition this year, one that builds on existing traditions in a meaningful way while also highlighting BU talent,” said Morganna Malyon, a member of BU’s Status of Women Review Committee, which organizes and presents the annual awards as part of Women’s Week and International Women’s Day.

“Each year, we present selected students with a gift card for a local bookstore along with a list of women authors curated by the committee,” she said, noting that the gift cards were initially a pandemic pivot that has now become its own tradition.
