 Dear STS community, 

It is our great pleasure to announce that Mr. Richard Lindseth ’73 has been selected as the recipient of the Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School 2014 Distinguished Alumni Award – the highest honour the School bestows on its alumni.

As a leading and innovative architect, Richard has been recognized for his creative and imaginative designs in Calgary, across Canada, and internationally. He serves as President of the Architectural Foundation of Alberta, as the Premier’s appointee to the Southern Alberta Flood Mitigation Panel after our province’s recent devastating flooding, and has been named a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada.  

In addition to his demanding professional life, Richard has continued to demonstrate his enduring support for STS, serving as a member of the Board of Governors (1986 – 1992) and President of the Alumni Association (1987 – 1989). He also gives his time as a mentor to STS alumni pursuing careers in the architectural profession and has spoken to our students on multiple occasions about the benefits of an STS education.

The Distinguished Alumni Award, established in 2003, recognizes eminent STS alumni who have distinguished themselves through their outstanding contributions to the School and the broader community, having stimulated new ideas or developments, and having shown exceptional dedication, creativity or leadership. Richard’s service to both STS and the community has indeed been exemplary, and we are proud to have him as a member of our alumni family.

We invite our STS community to join us as we celebrate Richard and our beloved School at the 8th Annual Calgary Alumni Dinner, on Thursday, May 8, 2014, at Gasoline Alley in Heritage Park.
