Endowment Established to Support the Brian R. Hughes Graduate Award in Water Resource Engineering

The NHC community is deeply saddened by the loss of our colleague, friend, and leader Brian Hughes, who tragically passed away on June 1, 2018.

An endowment - Brian R. Hughes Graduate Award in Water Resource Engineering has been established at the University of British Columbia to fund deserving graduate students who exemplify hard work, leadership, volunteerism, and academic aptitude in the field of water resource engineering. Tax-deductible contributions to the endowment can be made online at this link.

After graduating from UBC, Brian joined NHC in 1988 and over the course of the next 30 years had an enormous impact on our organization and the water resource community. Brian was widely respected by his peers and deeply admired by all of us who had the privilege of knowing him.
