Sylvain Duguay †
- Mention d'honneur
"I have the best job in the world." Passionate about teaching and beloved by his colleagues and students, Sylvain Duguay is well deserving of this year’s Honourable Mention Award. A Humanities and Universe of the Arts teacher at John Abbott since 2010, Sylvain encouraged students to learn about themselves and the societies in which they live. He helped them develop critical tools and become more knowledgeable engaged citizens. Sadly, he was recently killed in a tragic car accident and the heartfelt outpouring of recognition of his talent as a teacher was universal.
