The Rising Star Award goes to Stephanie Boychuk (Instructor, Adult Basic Education, Vancouver Island University).
The Rising Star award recognizes individuals who “while early in their career, demonstrate exceptional leadership and accomplishment in the area of transfer and articulation within the BC Transfer System.”
Stephanie was selected for this award in recognition of her extraordinary leadership, vision, and dedication in helping to move the Adult Basic Education (ABE) Steering Committee forward within a short period of time. Stephanie was elected to sit on the ABE Steering Committee, due to
her deep commitment to articulation. Her leadership skills were immediately evident, and she was elected as Co-Chair of the committee.
Among her many accomplishments, Stephanie re-organized the committee’s Moodle website, organized an ad hoc committee to review the ABE Steering handbook, worked to resolve issues regarding the ABE Articulation Guide, and ensured ABE instructors updated their courses for the
ABE articulation grid, all within one year.
