The 2011 Bryden Alumni Award for Redefine the Possible goes to: Eric Walters!
Redefine the Possible: For leadership and successes which are innovative, unconventional and daring, embodying York's trailblazing motto "Redefine the Possible"
Eric Robert Walters (BA '79, BSW '82, MSW '86): Eric began writing to entice his Grade 5 students into becoming more interested in reading and writing. Since then, he has published 68 novels for young people that have been translated into numerous languages and won more than 70 awards. His charitable work is equally impressive. Causes into which he has poured his talent and passion include boys' literacy, the Terry Fox Foundation, Uganda Guluwalk, Free the Children and his own project, The Creation of Hope, which he established after witnessing the shocking poverty of children living in the mountains near Nairobi.
