It has been ten years since BCATML has bestowed a Lifetime Honorary Award. This prestigious award recognizes the outstanding contributions an individual has made to BCATML and its members, as well as promoting the teaching of second languages in British Columbia. At this year's Celebrating Languages Conference, BCATML's Executive Committee decided to honour two outstanding educational leaders who have clearly demonstrated an unwavering commitment towards second language education, not only in British Columbia, but also across Canada. This year's recipients are Diane Tijman and Dr. Wendy Carr.
Both Diane Tijman and Dr. Wendy Carr served on BCATML's Executive Committee in a variety of roles, including president between 2004-2006 and 2006-2008, respectively. They each have also served with the Canadian Association of Second Language Teachers (CASLT), as well as Canadian Parents for French (CPF). While neither could be in attendance at this year's Annual General Meeting, both expressed their gratitude and heartfelt thanks for this award and were with us in spirit through the day tweeting from the Canadian Parents for French national convention. Congratulations and felicitations!
