Dr. Paula Burns, a lifelong educator who has served as President and CEO of Lethbridge College since 2013, has received the YWCA Women of Distinction Lifetime Achievement award. She and the eight other women who received this year’s honours from the YWCA Lethbridge and District will be celebrated at an awards ceremony on March 9 at the Lethbridge Lodge.
“It truly is a great honour to even be nominated for an award of distinction, but to win a lifetime achievement award is overwhelming,” says Dr. Burns. “I am privileged to be a leader in a very collaborative community, and without the support and encouragement of many people this would not have been possible.
“The support I received for this award is reflective of the strength of my network, the people who challenge me to be the best I can be every day – students, colleagues, community and business leaders, and my friends,” she adds. “I look forward to celebrating this achievement with all of the other award winners on March 9. Thank you to the YWCA for taking the time to recognize the difference women make.”
