The British Columbia Historical Federation (BCHF) is pleased to announce that Aman Johal of Surrey is a recipient of an Inspiration award for his work spurring camaraderie and shared collective learning for staff at Fort Langley National Historic Site.
The award is bestowed upon individuals and organizations who have provided hope and optimism to the sector in British Columbia during the ongoing pandemic.
A long-time site interpretation supervisor at Fort Langley, Aman developed and ran regular history and trivia quizzes virtually for colleagues as staff adapted to working from home during the early stages of the pandemic. Under his leadership, the quizzes sparked lively discussion, laughter and debate amongst participants, promoting a sense of togetherness and connection during a time of social disruption.
The award was presented at the Federation’s annual conference awards gala online on June 5. You can watch Aman’s unique acceptance video below.
