It is with great pride that the staff and students of Bonar Law Memorial School announce that our fellow Bengal, and physical education teacher, Julie Hudson, has been recognized for her commitment to citizenship and volunteerism both in and outside of our school community, with the Senate 150th Anniversary Medal. Ms. Hudson was invited to Ottawa by Senator Rose-May Poirier to receive her award in a ceremony held on Parliament Hill.  Awards were given “to Canadians or permanent residents actively involved in their communities who, through generosity, dedication, volunteerism and hard work, make their hometowns, communities, regions, provinces or territories a better place to live.” Ms. Hudson’s many volunteer roles, over the years, as listed below, highlight the very generosity and dedication that this prestigious award seeks to recognize:
