NI District President Receives Honorary Degree

Monday 4th April 2022

NI District President, David Blevins received an honorary degree from Ulster University on Thursday 31 March 2022, at a ceremony to officially install Dr Colin Davidson as the sixth Chancellor of Ulster University.  Dr Colin Davidson is an internationally renowned artist honoured for his outstanding commitment to remembrance, healing and excellence in the field of art.

David is recognised for his outstanding contribution to journalism, education & charitable projects in Northern Ireland.  In total Ulster University awarded ten honorary degrees to distinguished educators, journalists, playwrights, leaders, and humanitarians both locally and globally.

Lisa Keys Director for The Boys’ Brigade in NI was among the first to congratulate David saying: 

“In Boys’ Brigade, we have the privilege of serving alongside thousands of fabulous volunteers who give their time, skills and leadership to ensure that we continue to advance Christ’s Kingdom here in NI. On behalf of the organisation, I warmly congratulate David and thank him for his faithful, inspiring leadership and commitment to The Boys’ Brigade. We are honoured and blessed to have him as our President.”

Commenting on the recipients, Ulster University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Paul Bartholomew said:

“Each year, we welcome thousands of students to Ulster University, and during their studies, we strive to equip them with the skills, knowledge and experience required to make a positive contribution to society. We firmly believe it is important that our students have positive role models to whom they can look up to for inspiration; role models who are making a real difference in the world around them, whether locally or globally.

‘As a society and as individuals, we have faced many challenges over the past two years. It is therefore timely and uplifting that we are now in a position to be able to honour these outstanding role models. Each of these individuals demonstrates leadership, resilience, integrity, progressive thinking, determination, talent and creativity, and they are a source of inspiration to us all.”
