Reeve Tory Campbell honoured with Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal

A special dignitary from Lethbridge received a top honour recently. Lethbridge County Reeve Tory Campbell took home the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal on Monday at the Rural Municipalities of Alberta convention in Edmonton. The award is given to citizens of the United Kingdom and its Commonwealth countries who have made a significant impact in their communities and who have contributed to the betterment of their municipalities. Campbell says it was quite humbling to receive the award.

“Very fortunate. Very thankful for that honour. But also acknowledge that there were 7000 of them that went out in Alberta to deserving Albertans that have contributed to society and helped to make Alberta a better place. So very fortunate to be included in that list. Very thankful. But also acknowledge all the great work of so many Albertans that were recognized. And obviously you can’t recognize everyone at the same time too. But a big honor and very thankful.”

Campbell began his second term as Reeve for Lethbridge County and has been a member of council since 2017.
