Anne Cooper awarded Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal

Retiring Revelstoke School District Anne Cooper was awarded the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal at a ceremony in Victoria.

Anne Cooper, the soon-to-be-retired of the Revelstoke School District, received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal at a ceremony in Victoria on Thursday.

” I was truly honored by my nomination  by the Minister of Education from among the thousands of outstanding educators in this province,” Cooper said. “I send my sincerest thanks to Minister McRae, Speaker Barisoff, former Minister Abbott  and Deputy Minister Gorman for the kind and gracious hospitality Bob (Cooper’s husband) and I received on Thursday. “

Cooper received the honour along with two other educators – Laura Verhoeven, a sustainable resource class at the Metchosin Technical Centre of Pacific Secondary school in the Sooke school district, and Steve Cardwell, the superintendent of the Vancouver School District.

“Anne, Laura and Steve epitomize the sacrifice and dedication the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal represents, and I am very honoured to present them this award,” said McRae. “Their contributions to our education system have been phenomenal, and I thank them for their service.”
