High marks have earned UCW graduand and Port Alberni, BC resident Rory Rickwood a Medal for Academic Excellence . Seven A-pluses netted him a 4.05 (maximum is 4.33) cumulative grade point average. 

The medal is the icing on a scholarly cake that the 60-year-old started baking long before he began his undergraduate studies at UCW in 2009. “My medal achievement shows that at any point in your career path, you can be enriched by an on-line education,” smiles Rickwood. 

The father of five children had an Associate Degree in Applied Communications and an Associate Degree in Human Resource Management when he began his online Bachelor of Arts in Business Communication. A Human Resource Manager for the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council for the last 16 years, Rickwood was hungry for more knowledge when he discovered UCW’s online BA program.
