Yellowknife Education District No. 1 (YK1)’s French Programs Supervisor Jean-Marie Mariez will be inducted into the NWT Education Hall of Fame today.
The Department of Education, Culture and Employment created the hall of fame in 2010 to recognize people who play a role in educating children in the NWT.
“Mr. Mariez has been instrumental in promoting second language education for children in Yellowknife for over 15 years,” a press release from YK1 states.
Mariez and six other educators from across the NWT will be inducted into the hall of fame in a ceremony at the legislature today.
