Former Burnett Students Honored with KPU JEDI and Upcycled Design Competition Awards

We are thrilled to announce that one of Burnett's former students, Destiny Lang, has been recognized for their outstanding contributions to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) as well as their innovative design talents!

Destiny's dedication to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion was exemplified through their advocacy for the inclusion of gender-affirming care in the Kwantlen Student Health and Dental Plan. Their tireless efforts and passionate advocacy have made a significant impact on our university community, and we are incredibly proud to see their hard work recognized with the KPU JEDI Award.

Additionally, Destiny Lang and another former JNB student, Denenae Tingla, secured second place in the Wilson School of Design & Our Social Fabric Upcycle contest for their remarkable design submission, which addressed the theme of "Gaia." Their creative use of recycled textiles and found objects beautifully captured the essence of environmental sustainability and innovation.

Join us in congratulating them for their well-deserved recognition and for exemplifying the values of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion that we hold dear at Burnett. We can't wait to see where their passion and talent take them next!

Once again, congratulations on these well-deserved recognitions!
