Vera Klein named Alumni Volunteer of the Year

Carleton graduate Vera Klein has been chosen as this year’s Alumni Volunteer of the Year.

Klein was presented with the award at the alumni weekend gala dinner at the Chateau Laurier in May. The award is presented to an invaluable member of the Carleton University Alumni Association who shows strong commitment to the spirit, students, programs and alumni population of the university.

Klein is a member of the Board of Governors, the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism Advisory Council, the Annual Fund Committee and the Founders Award Selection Committee.

Klein got involved the university-related activities when she studied sociology and psychology at Carleton. She graduated in 1968.

“My liberal arts degree laid the foundation and groundwork for my diversified path,” says Klein.

When she wasn’t studying, Klein wowed crowds on campus and at coffeehouses as a folk singer.

Soon after graduation, Klein joined the family business, the Boyd Group of Companies. After 20 years of hard work, Klein became CEO in 1996.

Despite her professional obligations, Klein has remained active in the Carleton community. Over the years, she has established several undergraduate music scholarships, been involved in numerous charity functions and has spoken at several student, alumni and donor events.
