Born in England in 1920, Harold Norman "Andy" Andrews was a veteran of the Second World War, during which he participated in the 6th Airborne Division D-Day landings in Normandy. After the war, Andrews completed his studies in engineering and immigrated to Canada. He worked with the Royal Canadian Engineers and in 1967 he was the Canadian Forces Liaison to the Winnipeg Pan-American Games.
In 1972, Andrews joined Douglas College as the Chairman (and later Director) of Program Development until 1979 when he was appointed Vice-Principal of McBride Campus in New Westminster. He held this position for two years, at which time he became the Director of Program Planning and Development. He retired in 1984.
Upon his death in 2000, Andrews' family established the Andy and Helen Andrews Memorial Award for students who demonstrate both athletic and academic achievement.
