The man who spearheaded a major project last year to beautify Prince Rupert has been recognized by the province for his efforts.

Glen Saunders, who launched Paint Prince Rupert with the help of local businesses, is one of the recipients of the BC Community Achievement Awards. Saunders, along with a number of community volunteers, brought fresh paint and vibrant colours to many of the older buildings in downtown Prince Rupert, helping to spruce up the look of the community and instill a sense of civic pride in all those involved.

“Business leader Glen Saunders has consistently stepped forward to initiate and support projects that enhance his community and encourage civic pride. Glen’s strength is his enthusiasm for the future of Prince Rupert,” reads the release from the provincial government.

Saunders, along with the other winners, will receive their certificate and medallion, designed by renowned Haida artist Robert Davidson, at a formal event in Victoria on April 25.
