Every year the Maritime Museum of BC presents the SS Beaver medals for outstanding contributions to BC's marine industry. One of this year's awards goes to Campbell Black for his work as one of the founders and leaders of Quadrant Marine Institute's apprenticeship training program for Marine Service Technicians.

The award medals are cast from actual parts of the wreckage of the SS Beaver, the first steam-powered vessel on this coast, wrecked off Vancouver in 1888.

Other 2017 recipients included Mr. Barrie Farrell, Capt. Keith McLaren, Mr. Roland Webb, and S.A.L.T.S (Sail and Life Training Society). Congratulations!
