The Lakeland Catholic School District has named Julie Chorney as their nominee for the Excellence in Catholic Education Award this year.
Each Catholic School Division can nominate one teacher they feel has gone above and beyond in their profession, except for Edmonton and Calgary which can nominate three. Chorney has been with LCSD since 2002.
“Through her service as a classroom teacher (Assumption Junior/Senior High School) and District-level Coach/Coordinator, Julie has continued to grow in her own faith while serving the needs of others,” a press release from the district reads. “Julie and her family have been active in both St. Dominic and Our Lady of the Assumption parishes in Cold Lake since their arrival in the city.”
“I am so honoured to be nominated for this award,” says Chorney. “I believe that authentic dedication to the beauty of Catholic Education must be shared lovingly and openly, both in word and deed. I am thankful that the Lord has given me the courage to champion Catholic Education and herald its necessity in all circumstances.”
Chorney will be presented with a certificate along with other nominees around the province at the Blueprints and SPICE Annual Spring Conference.
