MONCTON, N.B. — Pat Armour was presented a humanitarian award by the Transportation Club of Moncton during its National Transportation Week banquet June 4.
Armour was recognized for her work with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the Canadian Diabetes Association. She has also been involved with causes such as education, literacy, youth and health.
Armour also co-chairs Armour Transport’s wellness committee and was instrumental in developing the company’s Shift Gears, Live Well wellness initiative. The program promotes healthy lifestyles for drivers, employees and their families.
Armour also chairs the Angus B. Armour Memorial Scholarship Committee, which offers financial support for students. Up to 10 scholarships are awarded annually to the sons and daughters of Armour Transport employees, valued at $1,500 each. Since 2001, more than $200,000 has been awarded.
When accepting the award, Armour quoted William Penn, founder of the state of Pennsylvania, who said “I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
