MSBA Award Winner

Murdoch MacKay Collegiate
March 14, 2019

Grace Minsky 1a.jpgCongratulations to Grace Minsky of Murdoch MacKay Collegiate, who was one of seven Manitoba students presented with a Student Citizenship Award at the 55th annual Manitoba School Boards Association convention today. She was nominated for the award by the RETSD board of trustees.

Grace is on the student council at Murdoch MacKay and volunteers with the school's Youth in Philanthropy program. She's taken part in Beyond the Hurt bullying presentations for youth, Ethics Bowl debates, and the annual school fashion show.

Outside of school, Grace is a teacher assistant at MTYP, volunteers at Folklorama and with theatre productions, and coaches a youth softball team. She's an accomplished young woman and wonderful role model—very deserving of this award.
