The Southwest Booster - - FRONT PAGE -

The Red Cross has be­stowed its high­est hon­our on Swift Cur­rent’s Tami Wall. The Or­der of Red Cross is the high­est level of recog­ni­tion awarded by the Cana­dian Red Cross for out­stand­ing hu­man­i­tar­ian ser­vice, ded­i­ca­tion and achieve­ment through vol­un­teerism or lead­er­ship with the or­ga­ni­za­tion. Fewer than 300 Cana­di­ans have re­ceived this pres­ti­gious award.

“I was sur­prised and hum­bled to be hon­oured in this way,” Wall stated af­ter re­ceiv­ing the award in Regina last Thurs­day. “I have al­ways been lucky to be part of an amaz­ing Saskatchewan Red Cross team. Vol­un­teer­ing for the Red Cross is a spe­cial op­por­tu­nity to make a dif­fer­ence in the lives of those who are most vul­ner­a­ble in our so­ci­ety.”

She was pre­sented the hon­our in recog­ni­tion of her hu­man­i­tar­i­an­ism and pro­fes­sional ex­per­tise which has pro­vided lead­er­ship and sig­nif­i­cant fundrais­ing to the or­ga­ni­za­tion in Saskatchewan.

“We’ve been ex­tremely for­tu­nate to have Tami Wall pro­vid­ing ex­pert ad­vice on lo­cal ac­tiv­i­ties rang­ing from fundrais­ing to ex­pand­ing our bul­ly­ing preven­tion pro­gram­ming across the prov­ince,” ex­plained Cindy Fuchs, Vice-pres­i­dent, Saskatchewan, Cana­dian Red Cross.
