On behalf of UM, congratulations to this year's DAA recipients
The Distinguished Alumni Awards recognize our most exceptional alumni whose achievements, gained through years of passionate dedication, have directly benefitted people living in Manitoba and around the world.
It is suiting we refer to this year's recipients as "agents of change." You see it on our young alumni being honoured—Ashley Richard, Nirvani Umadat and Chris Voth—who create spaces for underrepresented groups to stand proud and to access resources. You see it in our community service recipients—Zofia de Witt, Lita Fontaine and Doug Harvey—who selflessly build others up and build cultures of giving.
