In a release naming the latest recipients Judy M. Foote, Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador said, “The latest 10 recipients of the Order of Newfoundland and Labrador represent the rich diversity of our province. While they vary in age, gender and the nature of their accomplishments, two things they all have in common are their love for Newfoundland and Labrador and their desire to make the world a better place. I congratulate all those being invested. This honour is welldeserved.”
