Recipients of Community Awards

Each year at Red Deer Polytechnic's Community Awards, we honour deserving individuals and community partners who have provided meaningful contributions to our learners and communities. This celebratory event provides an opportunity for community members, alumni and distinguished guests to connect with one another, and to celebrate the year's honourees.

The 2022 Community Awards celebration was held on October 21, 2022, as a part of Homecoming weekend.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this event had not been held since 2019. In 2022, we celebrated a number of recipients for a number of years, including the following deserving individuals and one community partner.

  • Morris Flewwelling was recognized as the 2020 recipient of the G.H. Dawe Memorial Award of Excellence.
