It is my pleasure to extend congratulations to Chief Terrance Paul of Membertou on being named to the Order of Canada. Chief Paul is a true friend and long-time supporter of Cape Breton University. He has provided guidance as a member of the Shannon School of Business Advisory Board and is a strong proponent for the Purdy Crawford Chair in Aboriginal Business Studies.
Under his leadership, Membertou has become a thriving community and regional economic driver spearheaded by the visionary, community-orientated and determined efforts of Chief Paul. Opportunities for education and training is one of his top priorities and his involvement in CBU has strengthened our delivery of Aboriginal education.
In 2010, CBU was honoured to bestow an Honorary Doctor of Laws on Chief Paul in recognition of his accomplishments and leadership.
We are grateful to Chief Paul for his continuous support and celebrate with him as he receives this most prestigious recognition.
Dr. Dale Keefe
