SURREY – Mayor Dianne Watts will be receiving an honourary degree from Kwantlen Polytechnic University.
The announcement was made last week by KPU President and Vice Chancellor Dr. Alan Davis, who will be presenting Watts with the degree this fall.
According to Davis, Watts was a natural choice for the honour, which was unanimously agreed upon as it made its way through the various levels of approval at the university.
"We’re always thinking about our region and the key people who have influenced our institution and the community," said Davis.
Watts will be presented with the degree in October, the month before the municipal election will determine her successor as mayor of Surrey.
