At last night’s meeting the Flin Flon School Board welcomed Cassidy Alexander and Niki Keramydas and their presentation on their recent trip to Winnipeg to attend a Young Historians evening. The evening was hosted by the Manitoba Historical Society which recognized the girl’s project from the Red River Heritage Fair on The Metis People. The two were invited to present their project to members of the Society and their guests earlier this month along with three other young students from the province. Niki and Cassidy received their Young Historians Award for their work which included a gift as well as membership to the Manitoba Historical Society making them the Society’s youngest members. The girls are also the first people out of Winnipeg to receive the honor.

Board Chair Amy Sapergia Green said she is looking forward to enjoying seasonal efforts from all the Division’s students as this always a busy and exciting time within the Division.
