Alumnae Achievement Award

The Alumnae Achievement Award is presented annually to a living alumna or an old girl in recognition of her outstanding dedication and accomplishments in her life's work, either professional or volunteer. Award recipients will not only have made a difference in the lives of others, but will also be exemplary and inspiring role models for CHS and its students.

2017 Alumnae Achievement Award

The Crofton House School Alumnae Association is pleased to announce that their 2017 Alumnae Achievement Award winner is Doreen McKenzie-Sanders C.M., OG ’38.

Doreen McKenzie-Sanders C.M. attended Crofton House School in the 1930's. She is an award-winning journalist, educator and publisher, presented with numerous awards including the Order of Canada (1986), the first Business In Vancouver's "Influential Women in Business" Lifetime Award (2005) and the Governor General's Award in Commemoration of the Person's Case (2006).  

Doreen started her career at the Vancouver Province in 1938 and after graduating from the University of Western Ontario's Journalism program (1962) she was the assistant editor for the Business Quarterly of Western's School of Business. Throughout her life, Doreen has been dedicated to her work of ensuring greater recognition of women's abilities and their capacity to lead. “Women are remarkably capable in their many roles in society. They have earned the right to be accepted as equals in every aspect of modern-day life. This message still needs to be shouted loudly and clearly and persistently.”
