2017 Everyday Hero Awards

Nominations open for the 2017 Everyday Hero Awards

GUELPH, Ontario – Is there someone in your school community who goes above and beyond to make the Upper Grand an exceptional place to work and learn?

Nominations are now open for the 2017 Everyday Hero Awards.

Tireless school volunteers, innovative teachers, bus drivers who go the extra mile, crossing guards who save lives – anyone who goes that extra mile is being sought by the board for honour as an Everyday Hero.

Candidates can be an employee, volunteer, individual, or community group active in schools – anyone who has a relationship with the system across Dufferin and Wellington Counties and the City of Guelph. Nominations are from peers, students, parents and other system partners.

Past recipients include an employee who worked tirelessly to ensure technology programs are available to all students, an inspiring teacher who was the driving force behind a massive collaborative fundraising drive, and volunteers who worked behind the scenes for decades, never asking for anything in return.

Nominations are open until Thursday April 13, 2017.

The awards ceremony is set for Wed. May 30 at the E.L. Fox Auditorium (John F. Ross CVI), 21 Meyer Drive, Guelph beginning at 7:00 p.m. A reception will follow the awards.
