  • Print

University of Manitoba president David Barnard is among five persons with connections to the university to receive a Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal from Lt.-Gov. Philip Lee on Monday.

Lee bestowed the medals during a private ceremony in the Lieutenant Governor’s office at the Manitoba Legislative Building. Some 900 of the 60,000 medals to be presented to celebrate the Queen’s ascent to the throne 60 years ago will go to Manitobans.

The University of Manitoba announced that Barnard had received the medal in a press release today. Also receiving medals were U of M scholars Harry Duckworth and Gordon Goldsborough, former Asper Associates chair Barry Rempel, and alumnus Lt.-Col. A.S. (Sandy) Will, aide-de-camp to five Lieutenant Governors.

The medals are being given to individuals who have made valuable contributions to the country, province or community.
