Congratulations Jody Bekevich, BRAVO! Award Winner

  Posted: November 5, 2014

Congratulations to Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) Communications Coordinator Jody Bekevich, who was presented with a BRAVO! Award of Merit from the Canadian Association of Communicators in Education (CACE).  Bekevich earned the honors for her work on the announcement of Full Time Kindergarten at St. Andrew’s School in High Prairie.  The announcement highlight was a video featuring kindergarten students in the school.  The video was shared on social media extensively within the community and resulted in high attendance at the Kindergarten open house and a substantial heightening of community awareness.

“I am so grateful to the St. Andrew’s School community for starring in and sharing this video.  The video would not have been successful without all of you to create a buzz,” said Bekevich.  “I am so thankful to work in such a supportive environment.  Without the support of my colleagues, my ideas would not become reality and this award would not be possible.”

Bekevich received the award at the 2014 BRAVO! Awards Gala in Quebec City on October 20th, as part of the annual CACE Conference.  The BRAVO! Awards are presented annually to professional communicators in education to recognize achievements in communications.  Projects are graded on research and analysis, planning and implementation, results and evaluation and the overall quality of the entry.

“Jody is an incredibly valuable asset to the HFCRD team and we are so proud of this accomplishment,” said Superintendent Betty Turpin.  “The community awareness that resulted from this announcement and video has made a positive impact on the Kindergarten program at St. Andrew’s that will be felt for years to come.”
