Callbeck, Hen­nessey, Ma­cAulay to be in­vested into Or­der of P.E.I. in Septem­ber

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FRONT PAGE -

Her­itage cham­pion, for­mer premier, ed­u­ca­tor to be in­vested into Or­der of Prince Ed­ward Is­land.

Cather­ine Callbeck, Cather­ine Hen­nessey and Jim Ma­cAulay have been named to the Or­der of Prince Ed­ward Is­land.

The three were se­lected from 53 nom­i­nees for the hon­our, which rec­og­nizes Is­lan­ders who have shown in­di­vid­ual ex­cel­lence or out­stand­ing lead­er­ship in their com­mu­nity and in their cho­sen oc­cu­pa­tion or pro­fes­sion.

It is the high­est hon­our that a cit­i­zen of the prov­ince can re­ceive.

Callbeck is a na­tive of Cen­tral Bed­eque and is the first woman to be elected premier of P.E.I. She has served in the House of Com­mons and the Sen­ate, and is a re­cip­i­ent of the Or­der of Canada.

Hen­nessey, of Char­lot­te­town, has been a cham­pion of P.E.I.’s her­itage and cul­ture for decades, and is a for­mer city coun­cil­lor.

In the 1960s and ’70s, she was part of a group of re­searchers and ad­vo­cates who were in­stru­men­tal in the preser­va­tion of the Is­land’s land­scapes and pub­lic spa­ces.

Hen­nessey re­ceived mem­ber­ship into the Or­der of Canada in 2001.

St. Peters Bay res­i­dent Ma­cAulay’s teach­ing ca­reer spanned four decades, the ma­jor­ity spent at Morell Re­gional High School where he served as prin­ci­pal from 1969 to 1997.

Ma­cAulay men­tors many of his for­mer stu­dents and con­tin­ues to coun­sel many who strug­gle with ad­dic­tion.

He has spear­headed ma­jor re­vi­tal­iza­tion projects, in­clud­ing the trans­for­ma­tion of the for­mer St. Peter’s Con­sol­i­dated School into the St. Peters Bay Com­plex.

The Or­der of P.E.I. will be pre­sented at a spe­cial in­vesti­ture cer­e­mony in Septem­ber at Govern­ment House in Char­lot­te­town.
