2015 Inductees

Sports Wall of Fame Reception

Every September, The Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation celebrates the achievements of their faculty members and alumni. The Sports Wall of Fame Reception honours the yearly inductees who continue to make exceptional contributions to the community. These individuals are inspiring role models and proud representatives of the University of Alberta and the Faculty of Education and Recreation. Their commitment to their respective fields of work has shaped the faculty’s programs and reputation. Each year, The Faculty of Education and Recreation is proud to honour these individuals and their achievements.

This year, four more inductees were honoured at a reception taken place in the Social Street, PAW Centre, located in the Van Vliet Centre (next to the Butterdome – map):

Deb (Covey) Barnett
Jennie (Cartmell) Binkie
Doug Bruce
Dale Schulha

This is always your best chance to rub shoulders with this year’s inductees and many past inductees as well.

This is also your chance to see the new U of A Sports Hall of Fame that opened in March, 2015. The Hall of Fame includes our inductee plaques, championship wall, memorabilia dating back to 1908 and a big screen to view our website on.

The 2016 Sports Wall of Fame Reception will take place on September 21. Put it in your calendar now – it’s not to be missed!

Alumni Awards

Alumni are one of the greatest assets of the University of Alberta. Their many diverse contributions to the community uphold the University’s tradition of excellence and promise of “uplifting the whole people.” The University of Alberta Alumni Awards recognize these acts and celebrate the outstanding achievements of alumni in seven categories.

The official induction of the Sports Wall of Fame inductees took place at the Alumni Awards ceremony, along with all of the other impressive U of A Alumni Awards recipients on Thursday, September 24 at the Northern Jubilee Auditorium, 11455 87 Avenue.
