School board seeks nominations for 2018 Everyday Hero Awards

GUELPH - Is there someone in your school community who goes above and beyond to make the Upper Grand District School Board an exceptional place to work and learn? Nominations are now open for the 2018 Everyday Hero Awards.

Tireless school volunteers, dedicated teachers, school and board staff, bus drivers who dedicate their time for kids, 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 come 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 drove a massive collaborative fundraising drive, and staff and community members who quite literally saved lives in local communities.

Nominations are open until April 13. The awards ceremony is set for May 29 at the E.L. Fox Auditorium (John F. Ross CVI), 21 Meyer Drive, in Guelph, beginning at 7pm. A reception will follow the awards.
