24th Annual Premier's Scholarship Luncheon sold out again!
We thank Trico Homes for being a champion at Bow Valley College through their generous and ongoing commitment to the Premier’s Scholarship Luncheon as our Presenting Sponsor. This continues their long tradition of supporting Bow Valley College students. Trico Homes is well known for their community investments, which focus on education, health and wellness, community development, and multiculturalism.
“It is our privilege to be part of this event as Presenting Sponsor because supporting and investing in our community is a core value at Trico Homes,” says CEO Wayne Chiu. “We thank and congratulate everyone as you join us in contributing to our community, and building stronger lives and families through the power of education.”
With his wife, Eleanor, Wayne Chiu founded Trico Homes and built a strong reputation for community support. In 2014, Bow Valley College announced the naming of the Chiu School of Business, recognizing the family’s long history of support for our students, including their 2013 donation of $3M — the largest ever made to Bow Valley College — to the business school.
Wayne Chiu has received several accolades for his community service, among them the Alberta Order of Excellence, awarded to him in 2018. He has also been recognized for his business and community accomplishments, including being named a Member of the Order of Canada and receiving the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee and Alberta Centennial medals. In 2016, the Chius were honoured by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education with the CASE Benefactor Award, becoming the first Canadians in 13 years to receive the international award recognizing outstanding contributions to community colleges.
We cannot thank Trico Homes and the Chiu family enough for their committed support to the Premier’s Scholarship Luncheon and Bow Valley College students. You truly enrich the lives of many.
