President’s Award Winners Announced

Posted on December 15, 2017

The recipients of President Matt Villella’s first-ever President’s Awards were announced at our AGM.  Lakehead Public Schools took the honours recognizing an organization or agency for their ongoing support of the program.  They’ve supported the last five retreats, annually support participants to the program, provide space for meetings and bring forward CAP projects.  Past-President Kelly Fettes won the award for volunteerism for her incredible commitment as a Board member. Kelly has devoted untold hours to the program, supporting the Aboriginal Youth Leadership Program and bringing Leadercast to Thunder Bay.  She’s the founder of our annual turkey drive and the list goes on!  Dina Gazzola (Class of 2017) was recognized for taking her group’s “I Have A Voice” CAP project to the next level, creating calendars and books comprised of the photos taken by the homeless youth participating in the CAP.  Dina raised $4500+ for Shelter House via the project.  Congratulations to all!
