Recognizing an Outstanding Contribution to Adult Literacy in Kitchener

Council of the Federation Literacy Award Celebrates Excellence in Education

Waterloo Region - Adult literacy volunteer Brenda Krys, of the Waterloo Region District School Board in Kitchener, is the winner of this year’s Council of the Federation Literacy Award. For the past eight years, Ms. Krys has dedicated her retirement to helping people in the Waterloo Region improve their reading, writing and math skills.

Premier Kathleen Wynne is honouring Ms. Krys for her exceptional work helping adult learners upgrade their basic skills, find jobs and succeed in their daily lives. As a lifelong learner herself, Ms. Krys’ pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in adult education is an inspiration for both her students and colleagues.

The Council of the Federation Literacy Award was created in 2004 and acknowledges the importance of literacy as an essential part of a vibrant society and a prosperous economy. The award recognizes the excellence of educators, volunteers, learners, community organizations and businesses in a range of areas, including family, Aboriginal, health, workplace and community literacy. Winners are chosen annually from each province and territory in Canada.

Supporting adult literacy and helping more people succeed in the workforce is part of the government's economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people's talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario's history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.
