Bio

I retired from 34 years of teaching and immediately became involved in giving back to the community. i have served on several Boards and continue to serve on Global Village Store Board, James Bay Community Project Board, Black History Awareness Society, Institute for Canadian Citizenship and I continue to be involved in volunteering in all of these as well as Inter-cultural Association and Glengarry Hospital.

I strongly believe in being part of the solution to problems, not part of the problem.

Story

When I teach citizenship classes and chair citizenship ceremonies, I always like to thank our newcomers for the gifts they bring, their time and talents! I like to speak about the values and goals of our country being accomplished through all of us giving of ourselves to contribute in ways which benefit each and every Canadian.
