Dr. Kim Hollihan and Dr. Lorna Martin

Dr. Kim Hollihan, Deputy CEO of CCPA, and Dr. Lorna Martin, President Emerita of CCPA, received the Vanier Institute’s 2017 Mirabelli-Glossop Award for outstanding leadership in the development of School Counsellors Working with Military and Veteran Families, a resource that provides information on the important roles and unique lifestyles of military and Veteran families that enrich schools, communities and workplaces.

Dr. Hollihan and Dr. Martin were integral to the development and promotion of this important resource, which was written and produced in partnership with the Canadian Military and Veteran Families Leadership Circle. The resource aims to assist school personnel in increasing their military literacy, and enabling increased support and inclusion of children and youth of military and Veteran families in the social, academic and athletic lives of schools across Canada.

Kim and Lorna join fellow award recipients Carole Tremblay and Wanda Turnbull-Lavoie (2015), Colonel (retd) Russell Mann (2013) and Doctors Janet Fast and Donna Lero (2012).
