BIBLE HILL - Two local Nova Scotia Agricultural College alumni have been recognized for outstanding service to their alma mater, their communities and beyond.
Oliver Browning (Class of '98) and Robert Murray (Class of '52) were each honoured on Friday evening through the college's Blue and Gold Awards program during a ceremony held in Jenkins Hall.
A third alumni, Charlie Embree (Class of '61), of Port Williams, was also recognized.
"These three individuals have achieved great distinction and success in their professional endeavours, and have made extraordinary contributions through their work
and volunteer efforts," said Dr. Richard Donald, vice-president of Research, Extension & Outreach. "They are true ambassadors for the Blue and Gold Awards program demonstrates NSAC's pride in the accomplishments of its deserving alumni."
Browning, the recipient of the Young Alumni Achievement Award, excelled early in his engineering career and "has tackled some ambitious projects," said NSAC spokeswoman Alisha Johnson. And despite the demanding career path he has set for himself, she said, he still takes time to play an active role in the community.
Murray, the Alumni Volunteer of the Year winner, has spent his working career
and retirement making a difference to those around him in such activities as being
involved with the St. James Presbyterian Church, volunteering with the Postal History Society of Nova Scotia, the Postal History Society of Canada, the Bible Fellowship Group, Colchester Historical Society and the Truro Philatelic Society.
