Holy Spirit Catholic School Division is proud to announce that Ms. Amanda Omilon, a first year teacher at Catholic Central High School in Lethbridge, has been selected as the division’s Edwin Parr nominee for the 2020/2021 school year. The Edwin Parr Award recognizes excellence in teachers beginning their professional careers.

Omilon began her work with Catholic Central High School over a year ago as part of her practicum placement. She has continued to serve the school since her graduation from the University of Lethbridge in 2020, where she received a Bachelor of Education Degree and Bachelor of Arts Degree in English; both with Great Distinction.

“Ms. Omilon is an exceptional candidate,” remarks Superintendent Ken Sampson. “She has demonstrated real passion for teaching and flexibility in learning for her students, even in these uncertain times. We’re really proud to bring her name forward as our Edwin Parr nominee.”

Expresses Omilon, “ I believe teaching is a calling: one that involves patience, commitment, and selflessness. I am truly blessed and humbled to be a nominee for the Edwin Parr award. The chance and opportunity to serve the students of our community each and every day has made all the difference! I am grateful for the chance to foster relationships with staff and students built on compassion, trust, and understanding to guide me in what I do.”

Joanne Polec, Principal of Catholic Central High School, warmly notes how pleased she is that Omilon has been nominated. “From the beginning, Amanda has brought such eagerness and light to our school. Her love of what she’s teaching, coupled with her desire to help her students see and use their own God-given talents, inspires them all to shine. Amanda is someone who definitely contributes to the legacy here at Catholic Central High School and imbues what we are all about.”

Please join Holy Spirit in congratulating Amanda Omilon on being this year’s Edwin Parr nominee.
