An Indigenous education worker at Pinewood Elementary School is one of 34 education professionals to receive the Premiers Award for Excellence.
Darrin Huzar was recognized in the Outstanding Support-School Community.
Each recipient received a $2000 personal bursary for professional learning as well as a $1,000 contribution to their school for professional learning and a trophy.
Launched in 2018, the awards honour public, independent and First Nations school teachers, support staff, principals, vice-principals, as well as school and district leaders, who all go above and beyond to make life better for K-12 students throughout the province.
The 34 winners were celebrated at a ceremony at Government House in Victoria last night (Thursday).
