Congratulations to New Westminster school trustee Lori Watt on winning COPE 378’s first annual Ardell Brophy Award.
The Award was initiated this year to recognize members of the COPE 378 union who have “shown exemplary service to their union and their community.”
The award honours Ardell Brophy, a long time COPE 378 union rep, member, activist, and advocate who is also an accomplished stand-up comedian and founder of Laff Riot Girls.
Fittingly, Watt herself is involved in the performing arts as an actress, director and producer.
The photo above shows Watt and Brophy alongside COPE 378 Vice President David Black at the award ceremony.
Black, as many know, is also a long time New Westminster resident and son of New Westminster MLA, and current opposition leader, Dawn Black.
Voice congratulates Ms. Brophy on the creation of this award and Ms. Watt as the first-time recipient.
