Colleagues in my department at UBC speak with warmth about the ways that Rose touched their lives. Rose touched many lives, not just those here at UBC - she worked tirelessly in her home community to see the rights of her people respected; she advocated for children in our public schools; she provided educational support at BCIT; she was a life long learner and a mentor and teacher.
Rose passed away July 2012.
It would would be a powerful act of respect to place Rose Point's name upon the new K-8 school being built at UBC.
Here is a short list of pieces written about Rose.
