First-year teacher at Lacombe Composite receives award

A first-year teacher at Lacombe Composite High School has been honoured for his outstanding contributions to education.

Steven Prediger and seven other teachers were recently nominated for the Edwin Parr Award for exceptional first-year teaching in Zone 4 of the Alberta School Boards Association, which is comprised of eight central Alberta boards.

“The exceptional calibre of teachers honoured at this event is so exciting,” said Laurette Woodward, Zone 4 chair and Red Deer Public Schools vice-chair.

“We know our students are in very capable hands with these teachers. It is truly a highlight for trustees to honour these nominees and hear from them at our celebration event.”

Prediger, a career and technology studies teacher, was celebrated as the winning nominee.

“I could not be more honoured to receive this award,” said Prediger.

“My goal from Day 1 has been to shape and guide the next generation to become educated, literate and compassionate citizens of tomorrow.

“I am proud to have the opportunity to be an educator, and will carry this with me throughout my career.”

  • Hailey Ortman, Bawlf School, Battle River School Division
