In the fall, 2020 BC election, EOAS Alumnus, Jeremy Valeriote, was elected as an MLA for the Green Party in West Vancouver Sea to Sky. After graduating in 1997 with a BASc in Geological Engineering in 1997, Jeremey went to work for a number of geotechnical/environmental consulting companies in Vancouver, including Seacor Environmental and BGC Engineering.
He then became a Manager/Director for the sunshine Coast Regional District. Like many of our graduates, Jeremy has made significant contributions to environmental assessment / mitigation to help promote sustainable development of BC’s natural resources. It is wonderful to see the skills and education of our graduates put to work in these applied contexts, and now represented in the provincial government.
