Working Together: AVRSB Staff Help Students and Colleagues Achieve Success


Every AVRSB staff member plays a part in “Working Together for Students”. Each month, we invite staff members to nominate colleagues for a Working Together Award, to celebrate those who go above and beyond expectations to do a great job, whether working directly with students or behind the scenes.

This month, we're pleased to recognize five AVRSB staff members for the great work they do: Maggie Doherty, Lorraine MacCormack, Laurie Hardacker, Krista Lunn and Pat Murphy.
