Farmers to be honored by Chamber of Commerce

Benefactor and former chancellor Murray Farmer and his wife Lynda—both of whom joined UVic in opening the Lynda and Murray Farmer Walk of Excellence at CARSA last year—will be honoured by the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce with a lifetime achievement award, presented at a chamber gala event on April 21. Al Hasham, chairman of the chamber, explained that the Farmers’ “business and philanthropic endeavours have had a profound impact on our community,” in the Times Colonist newspaper, citing in particular their support of post-secondary education. At the end of his second term as UVic chancellor, Farmer had served an amazing 150 months on the UVic Board of Governors.
