Glen­garry District High School and Tagwi Se­condary School teacher Lind­sey Howes re­ceived a Di­rec­tor’s Award of Merit at the Up­per Canada District High School’s Cel­e­bra­tion Night on June 4.

“I am truly hon­oured that my col­leagues took the time out of their busy sched­ules to nominate me for this award and I am thrilled to have been se­lected by the su­per­in­ten­dents and trus­tees of the UCDSB to re­ceive this award,” Ms. Howes said in an email in­ter­view last week. “I have been able to pro­vide my stu­dents with some amaz­ing learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties this year (e.g., wind tur­bine com­pe­ti­tion, gar­den­ing project, ca­reer ex­plo­ration, etc.) largely be­cause of sup­port from my col­leagues and our fan­tas­tic com­mu­nity.” Ac­cord­ing to a let­ter sent to Ms. Howes from the UCDSB: “Your nom­i­na­tion and ref­er­ences had the high­est re­gard for your work as an em­ployee of the UCDSB and it is clear that you have made a last­ing and pos­i­tive im­pres­sion on many oth­ers. You clearly bring the ‘best’ of your­self to the work­place on a daily ba­sis and demon­strate fully the qual­i­ties that we ad­mire in our staff.” The Cel­e­bra­tion Night hon­oured vol­un­teers, ser­vice providers, and ed­u­ca­tors in the school board.

Also rec­og­nized was Rev. James Dou­glas, for his vol­un­teer work at Pleas­ant Cor­ners Pub­lic School
