Two UNBers have been named to the Order of New Brunswick for their outstanding work in our province.

Ms. Robyn Tingley and Chief Patricia Bernard were among 10 New Brunswickers who were named Order of New Brunswick recipients on Aug. 5 as part of New Brunswick Day celebrations.

Ms. Tingley, of Rothesay, is in her second term as vice-chair of UNB’s Board of Governors. She received the honour “for her extraordinary achievements in leadership and her commitment to women’s equality in New Brunswick.”

Madawaska Maliseet First Nation Chief Bernard (BEd ’96, LLB ’99) was inducted into the Order “for her outstanding achievements in uniting the Wolastoqey Nation in New Brunswick and for her work in the economic development of the Madawaska region.”

An official investiture ceremony will be held at Government House in Fredericton in October.
