uManitoba to award young corporal posthumous BA

October 16, 2007

The University of Manitoba has announced that it will award a posthumous degree to Cpl. Jordan Anderson, an Edmonton-based soldier who was killed in Afghanistan this past summer.  Anderson had been pursuing a BA through uManitoba's military support office prior to his death.  He is reported to have been very close to completing his degree, and had earned all the program requirements.  Anderson's family will attend the university's fall convocation ceremonies in Winnipeg tomorrow.
