Local Teachers Receive Governor General’s Award at Rideau Hall

 

Ottawa, ON – Today, Mr. Ryan McManaman and Mr. David Alexander received the Governor General’s History Awards for Excellence in Teaching at a special ceremony at Rideau Hall, the official residence of the Governor General in Ottawa. Larry Miller, MP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, was in attendance and congratulated Mr. McManaman and Mr. Alexander at the ceremony.

 

The Governor General’s History Awards for Excellence in Teaching is presented to individual teachers or teams of teachers for excellence in teaching Canadian history. This year, there were a total of 8 recipients.

 

Mr. McManaman and Mr. Alexander are receiving this prestigious award in recognition of their dedication to teaching students about local Veterans from the Owen Sound area.
