Share the Mission 2015/2016 Award Recipient: Christina Fox ‘iitsisaanoowa’ - Sep 09,2016
 

The Board of Trustees for the Holy Spirit Roman Catholic Separate Regional Division No. 4 was pleased to honour Mrs. Christina Fox (‘iitsisaanoowa') with the prestigious Share the Mission Award for the 2015/2016 school year during Opening Mass on August 31, 2016. Mrs. Fox has served the Holy Spirit Catholic School Division for the past 16 years; primarily as a First Nations, Metis, Inuit support worker at Children of St. Martha School, though she has often provided her expertise at a number of schools throughout the division. 

In addition to being an amazing resource for the nuances of Blackfoot culture, Christina is recognized for her calming presence and loving example that empowers those around her in their work with students.  As Shelley Baier, past principal of Children of St. Martha School, explained, "Christina is a woman of devout faith, a humble servant of God, a woman of grace and gratitude. Her presence here at school provides support and care to every person - child, staff, parent or grandparent. The focus of her work may be the First Nations, Metis, and Inuit children and families, but Christina has such an innate understanding of the human heart that she has become a natural support to all."

On accepting the award Christina shared that she felt both humbled and honoured.  Her message to all staff was to continue to serve our children through love -  reminding them that, "You are a child of God.  Be the person God wants you to be. "
