We want to extend our congratulations to Barb Marian. Earlier this month our Business and Finance Manager travelled to Ottawa for a ceremony at Rideau Hall during which she was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal. The award was in recognition of her contributions within the sport of Taekwondo and the citation reads:
Barbara Ruth Marian, M.S.M.
As an internationally accredited referee for the sport of taekwondo, Barbara Marian has broken barriers for women and girls in a male-dominated sport. Highly respected in the worldwide taekwondo community for her knowledge and fairness, she has served as a role model to athletes and as a mentor to Canadian and international referees.
That's quite an accomplishment. We're privileged to have such a dedicated and distinguished person in our midst. Well done Barb!
