The Jeanne Sauvé Foundation is thrilled and proud to announce that Maggie MacDonnell, one of our Fellows (2009-2010), is in the running for the prestigious US$ 1 million Global Teacher Prize. She was chosen from among 20,000 initial nominations and applications from 179 countries.

MacDonnell said that if she were to win she would establish a non-profit that would run environmentally focused programs for northern youth.

Join us in congratulating her and celebrating her amazing and humbling work being recognized. She, much like her students, ‘are the true Northern Lights’!
