Join us for the 92nd Annual Rotary Club of Truro Charter Night.

Guest Speaker: This year's speaker will be Maggie MacDonnell, the 2017 Global Teacher of the Year.  Check out the web page on her prize.

MacDonnell, who grew up in rural Nova Scotia, is a 2002 StFX graduate and former Coady Institute intern.

She received a prize, worth $1 million US, for her work in Salluit, an Inuit community in northern Quebec. ​She beat out 20,000 other candidates from 179 countries for the 2017 Global Teaching Prize, which has become one of the most-coveted and high-profile awards for teaching excellence.

The prize, awarded annually by the Dubai-based Varkey Foundation, was established  to "underline the importance of educators worldwide."

The Foundation said in a statement MacDonnell has "made an outstanding contribution to the lives of her students and everyone in Salluit."
