Alumni Taking Centre Stage
We are exceedingly pleased to announce that this year’s special guest speaker and the featured performer for the Community Banquet & Silent Auction are both proud to call themselves King’s alumni. Bring your family, friends and fellow alumni back to campus for a celebration of all things King’s on Saturday October 15, 2016.
Flying in from our nation’s capital, Lisa DeMoor BA'06 will share her King's story and how it led her to serve in Nigeria and then become an advisor to our Prime Minister as member of the Privy Council Office. This proud graduate of the Politics, History & Economics program has worked on many relevant issues including Ebola, Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, etc. Singer/songwriter Jontue Elan Kuyvenhoven BMus'13 will also be joining us from Ontario as the evening's live entertainment. Her first EP entitled “Jontue Elan” was nominated for “Jazz/Blues song of the Year – Oh Abbey” and “Jazz/Blues Album of the Year” in 2013 by Canada's Gospel Music Association. Jontue performs regularly, both with a band and as a solo performer, and is currently working on her first full-length album.
Tickets are on sale now! Take advantage of the alumni “early bird” discount before September 15th.
The Community Banquet will also feature alumni contributions including delicious potatoes donated by Angela Santiago (VanderSchaaf) Dip’92, CEO of The Little Potato Co., incredible floral arrangements at the hand of Wendy Larson (Schulz) BA’03 of Tickled Floral and Alberta’s finest craft beer from Blindman Brewing courtesy of Hans Doef BA’04.
