Two Regina residents named to Saskatchewan Order of Merit

The recipients of the 2019 Saskatchewan Order of Merit will be acknowledged in the Queen City tonight.

Six citizens, two of them from Regina, will be named to the Order of Merit by Chief Justice Robert Richards on behalf of Lieutenant Governor W. Thomas Molloy and receive a medal at a ceremony.

This year’s recipients are:

  • Dr. William Francis Ready (Regina)
  • Lyn Goldman (Regina)
  • Don Atchison (Saskatoon)
  • Doug Cuthand (Saskatoon)
  • Dr. Andy Potter (Saskatoon)
  • Grit McCreath (Calgary and Waskesiu)

“The 2019 recipients have made enormous contributions to our province, and are most deserving of the prestigious honour,” mentioned Richards.

Saskatchewan’s Order of Merit has been in place since 1985 to appreciate citizens who contribute to the province in either arts, business and industry, agriculture, community leadership and volunteer service.

The latest inductees will join 234 other citizens who have previously been invested into the Saskatchewan Order of Merit.

“I congratulate each of these remarkable citizens on receiving the Saskatchewan Order of Merit and I thank them for their strong leadership, their uncommon generosity, and their remarkable vision.
