Today, Cape Breton University is congratulating Chief Terry Paul of Membertou on being named to the Order of Canada.
A great friend, mentor and leader, Chief Terry has provided guidance to CBU 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. We are grateful for his dedication and commitment to CBU, which has further strengthened our delivery and successes of Aboriginal education and initiatives.
Chief Terry’s efforts in economic development and his successes have been recognized across North America and under his leadership, the First Nation community of Membertou has become a thriving community and regional economic driver.
In 2010, Chief Terry was awarded a Cape Breton University honorary degree, Doctor of Laws, honoris causa in recognition of his outstanding accomplishments and visionary leadership.
Today, Cape Breton University celebrates with him as he receives this most prestigious recognition.
