At this year’s spring convocation, Thompson Rivers University is recognizing four exceptional people with honorary degrees. One of those remarkable people is former Chief and Councillor of the Xat’sull (Soda Creek) First Nation, activist, lawyer, and author Bev Sellars who wrote They Called Me Number One and Price Paid: The Fight for First Nations Survival. Other recipients of honorary degrees from Thompson Rivers University this spring include Dr. Verna Billy-Minnabarriet, Jorge Campos, and Christopher Weddell.
Honorary degrees are the highest form of recognition bestowed upon individuals who have made a tremendous impact in their field and we could not be more delighted to see the outstanding Bev Sellars being celebrated in this manner. Read more about this year’s fantastic honourees here.
