Laurean Reid, 2019 Recipient of the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers

LONG TIME SUNSHINE COAST ELDERCOLLEGE VOLUNTEER, LAUREEN REID, RECEIVES AWARD OF SOVEREIGN’S MEDAL FOR VOLUNTEERS IN 2019

Sunshine Coast  ElderCollege takes great pleasure in announcing that former Board member and Program Committee Chairperson, Laurean Reid, has been honoured with the prestigious award of the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers. 

ElderCollege nominated Reid for the medal and the nomination was endorsed by the Sunshine Coast Association for Community Living (SCACL) based on Reid’s long and dedicated volunteer work for both organizations. In fact, her volunteer work over four decades extends well beyond those two organizations.

The Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers “recognizes the exceptional volunteer achievements of Canadians from across the country.”

 The medal is an official Canadian honour created by the Crown, and as such, is part of the Canadian honours system administered by the Chancellery of Honours, part of the Office of the Secretary to the Governor General. The medal design was created by the Canadian Heraldic Authority and the medal is manufactured by the Royal Canadian Mint.
