The recipient of the Prince Albert campus honorary diploma is Ralph Boychuk. As a former 39-year commercial banker, Ralph has provided advice and strategy to thousands of people and businesses to support them in accomplishing what matters most, in ways that bring prosperity and success. By tailoring lending solutions that impacted sources and uses of cash to minimize stress on the workplace and balance sheet, Ralph helped companies and their owners generate stronger results and created more satisfying work experiences. His clients called on him to help them identify financial solutions to expand and grow their companies.
Second only to his successful banking career, Ralph is committed to improving the lives of others, and has devoted immeasurable time and significant effort volunteering in support of local, regional and provincial causes.
