The Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce will honour two UWindsor graduates at its annual gala on Friday, June 24: Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Peter Hrastovec (BA 1979, LLB 1982) and outgoing chair Janice Forsyth (BHK 1983, MHK 1989).
Hrastovec, a lawyer at Shibley Righton LLP, has focused his practice on employment and labour law, and commercial litigation.

A portion of the proceeds from the gala will support this community endeavour.
