The CACE Bursary was established in recognition of the long-term service and commitment of past dean Craig Andrews, a pioneer educator who brought an innovative and energetic approach to education. He impacted the lives of countless learners, educators and community members over his 31-year career at Selkirk College.
Andrews welcomed and respected students, recognized their challenges and achievements, engaged and empowered them, and appreciated their contributions to the college. He always looked forward to sharing his passion for learning with others. In 2016, he was honoured with a Distinguished Educator Award in recognition of his tremendous contribution to the advancement of learning in the West Kootenay and Boundary regions of British Columbia.
An educator of educators, Andrews always empowered others, creating opportunities for his teams to learn. In doing so, he laid the foundations for the future.
