Doug Sutees, associate professor at the College of Law was one of three volunteers with the Saskatchewan Abilities Council to receive a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal on Dec. 7, 2012. The commemorative medal marks the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Thone, and honours Canadians for their contribution to community and country.

“I was tremendously honoured to receive the Queen’s Jubilee medal,” said Surtees. “The Easter Seals organization has allowed me to meet so many wonderful participants, staff and volunteers that I know I have received more by helping Easter Seals do its fabulous work, than I have given.”

Doug has served as a volunteer member of the Board of Directors of the Saskatchewan Abilities Council for more than 20 years, serving on the executive committee, finance committee, nominating committee, compensation committee, and Camp Easter Seal advisory committee. He was the president of the Board of Directors from 2005 to 2007.  He has a strong commitment to children and adults with disabilities, demonstrated though his involvement at Camp Easter Seal, both as a counselor and as an advisory committee member. Doug also presently serves as president of Easter Seals Canada.
