Lacombe educator receives Prime Minister’s Award

LCHS teacher Steven Schultz received a Certificate of Excellence in Ottawa

Every day Canadian teachers empower young people to shape our future. They nurture a culture of curiosity in Canada and help create an environment where young people are encouraged to reflect, to challenge, and to dream their biggest dreams.

The Prime Minister awarded sixty-nine of Canada’s most inspiring and innovative educators with the country’s highest honours for Teaching Excellence, Teaching Excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and Excellence in Early Childhood Education. These exceptional women and men inspire their students and have equipped them with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.

“Congratulations to Canada’s exceptional educators who challenge students to reach higher, work harder and think bigger, while instilling in them a lifelong passion for learning. Today more than ever, students benefit from digital skills, critical thinking and creative problem-solving abilities. Thanks to our teachers, young Canadians are set up to succeed in the jobs of tomorrow, ” said Navdeep Bains, minister of innovation, science and economic development.

This is the 25th year of the Prime Minister’s Awards, which recognizes the Canadians who work so hard to give our next generation the best possible start in life. Each award winner has demonstrated a unique approach to education that motivates both young Canadians and fellow teachers to reach their full potential.

“Congratulations to these extraordinary teachers who inspire young Canadians each and every day to dream their greatest dreams. They are providing the next generation with the skills they need to achieve them,” Kirsty Duncan, minister of science and sport, said.
