Myrna & Terry Daniels Award in Indigenous Education

Terry Daniels studied Science at Victoria College in the 1950s. He went on to become President and Chairman of Daniels Electronics, the company founded by his father in 1938. Daniels Electronics designed and manufactured customized digital and analogue radio repeater systems capable of working in extreme climates. It was one of Victoria’s longest running businesses and continually expanded into new markets and product lines. The company was also a long-term UVic co-op employer. The company was sold in 2012 to Codan Radio of Australia, which is carrying on at the same location.

Myrna Daniels studied in the Department of French at the University of Victoria in the 1980s. From the time she started studying French in high school, Myrna had a love of and natural affinity for the French language. She continued in the French Language Diploma Program at UVic in the late 70s and early 80s. In the late 80s, she took first year French for credit and was surprised and extremely grateful to win the Adeline Julienne Deloume Memorial Scholarship.

Terry and Myrna recognize the important of language revitalization and all that it means for preserving culture, traditional knowledge and ways of knowing.
