About Bjorn Harold Bjornson
Bjorn Bjornson was an Area Governor for Area 24, when he was tragically killed in a freak truck accident in West Vancouver - Sept 27th, 1996.
He was a toastmaster who gave nothing but the best in everything he did. He was dedicated, and committed to helping himself and others learn the value of this organization. His smile, and generosity of spirit always gave those in need, a welcome lift to their day. He is missed, but his spirit lives on forever. Bjorn's home Club was "North Shore."
The Bjorn Bjornson Award was presented by Sheila Hayes DTM in memory of an outstanding dedicated Toastmaster.
This award is presented to a Division B Toastmaster who goes above and beyond the call of duty. It is the creme de la creme of Toastmastering - the efforts in making Toastmasters a better, more effective organization that count. Many Toastmasters commit themselves to a level of excellence that few aspire to, and even fewer achieve. It is those Toastmasters, we wish to thank and recognize.
Anyone in Division B is entitled to nominate a Toastmaster they feel is deserving of this award.
