GPPSD nominates United Way for Friends of Education Award

The Grande Prairie Public School Division has nominated United Way Alberta Northwest for the Alberta School Boards Association Friends of Education Award.

The award nomination marks a recognition of individuals and organizations that enhance education within Alberta communities.

According to the GPPSD, United Way played an “influential” role within the city’s education system for years through its programs such as the “Tools for School Program” which helps students access necessary school supplies, nutrition programs, and assistance for students with developmental disabilities and the “Period Promise Program” which provides students with essential menstrual products.

GPPSD Superintendent Sandy McDonald says the nomination highlights the support United Way has shown to education in Grande Prairie through its partnership with the GPPSD.

The award winner will be announced at the Alberta School Boards Association’s Fall General Meeting.
