The Jeanne Sauvé Foundation is thrilled and proud to announce that Maggie MacDonnell, one of our Fellows (2009-2010), was awarded 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 she would like to 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’!
