Director of Continuing Education, Lynn Jest, is a recent recipient of the Heart of the Community Award.

This annual award is presented by North Shore Neighbourhood House to people who have provided exemplary service to the community. For the past four years Lynn has offered volunteer service to the Braithwaite Community Centre, including three years as chair of the JBCC’s governance committee. This City-appointed committee is a committed group of citizens who oversee operations at the centre, developing and implementing strategic plans to ensure that community needs are being met.

“John Braithwaite Community Centre is a complex community partnership and Lynn has provided exceptional leadership in developing membership and skill levels on the committee,” said JBCC manager, Richard Gauntlett. “She has successfully negotiated and nurtured understanding and protocols within the partnership, and steered the work of the committee through sometimes difficult issues to a point where it is an effective group.”
