PVNC Communications Manager Galen Eagle took home two Bravo Awards of Distinction for the projects Vimy 100 and Syrian Journey.

“It’s one thing to celebrate accomplishments as a school board, but quite another and much more satisfying experience to have the stories told in a way that engages the enthusiasm and pride of our communities,” Director of Education Michael Nasello said.

“Galen Eagle is a masterful journalist with a keen eye for the story that needs to be told. We congratulate him and are grateful for the skills and artistry he brings to PVNC in excellent communications. The awards are a wonderful recognition of this talent.”

The Bravo Awards recognizes and honours exemplary work in all aspects of school public relations, communications, marketing and engagement.

The awards ceremony is the highlight of the annual CACE conference, which brings together communication professionals from school boards across Canada for professional development and to share best practices from coast to coast.

Vimy 100

While travelling with students from Peterborough’s St. Peter and Holy Cross secondary schools in Europe as part of the Vimy 100 celebrations, Eagle captured images and stories in real-time through social media and wrote a series of columns for the Peterborough Examiner capturing the students’ voice as they toured WW1 and WW2 sites.

A Syrian Journey

Through photos, videos and story, Eagle documented the arrival of the Board’s sponsored Syrian family from the moment they landed at Pearson Airport in Toronto, to their arrival in Peterborough and their warm welcome in their new school communities.

PVNC has earned four Bravo awards in the past two years. Last year the Board was recognized for its efforts in promoting self-regulation in the classrooms and the re-branding of St. Thomas Aquinas CSS in Lindsay.
