The Doug Beechy Award
The Doug Beechey Award was established in 1979, the year of the 60th Session of the Tuxis Parliament of Alberta, as an award to honour Alumni of the tuxis parliament for their service to the community.
The award was named for Doug Beechey, a former premier of the Parliament (49th Session) and Chairman of the Alumni Society (1972 - 1975). Doug had died earlier that year, and the Alumni Society wanted to honour his memory.
The Award is given to those Alumni who, throughout their lives, have fulfilled the TUXIS motto: "Willingly And Cheerfully Doing More Than That Which It Is Our Duty To Do."
