The kudos keep coming Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows educator Scott Ormiston.
This week it was announced that he had won a Prime Minister’s Certificate of Achievement.
He was one of 54 teachers from across Canada to win an award, which was announced on Oct. 7.
Ormiston is part of a team that works with at-risk students in the local school district, and has increased its aboriginal graduation rate to 74 per cent – which is 20 points higher than the average for the province.
