STM welcomes Scholar in Indigenous Education

A special ceremony to honour Harry Lafond marks new era for St. Thomas More College

A Welcoming Ceremony and Feast in honour of our new STM Scholar in Indigenous Education, Mr. Harry Lafond, was held on Nov. 5, 2019.
The ceremony was led by Elders AJ and Patricia Felix from the Sturgeon Lake First Nation and attended by members of Lafond’s family, representatives from the STM Board of Governors, and participants in the 
Indigenous Voices program at STM.
The ceremony highlighted Mr. Lafond’s role which will see him pursue his love of teaching as well as serve as a cultural advisor for the College.
