U of L Fall Convocation today
Three special presentations are on the program for ceremonies this morning during convocation events at the University of Lethbridge.
Venture capitalist, philanthropist and “Dragons Den” TV star Arlene Dickinson was to have been presented an honorary Doctorate of Laws degree during the celebratory event. At the last moment, however, she’s reportedly unable to attend.
But Lethbridge business owner Bill Spenceley, a U of L science graduate in 1981, will be presented the Distinguished Alumnus of the Year award by the U of L Alumni Association.
And Young Alumnus of the Year recognition will go to Bryn Hewko, who earned his Master of Fine Arts degree in 2016. He’s since made a name in the cinematic industry through hisn startup company, Output Media.
A total of 249 degrees, diplomas and certificates will also be presented, starting at 10 a.m. in the 1st Choice Savings Centre gymnasium. Those unable to attend may watch the proceedings online at
