On Saturday, February 24, the Faces of Fusion Awards Gala celebrated community builders in the Saint John region.
The awards gala recognizes individuals who have played a leadership role in the following categories:
Business & Entrepreneurship
Arts & Culture
Sports & Recreation
JDI sponsored the intrapreneurship award; recognizing individuals or groups within the community that, through their efforts, have been part of or the lead on an innovation within a company or organization. At the heart of our business at JDI is a spirit of intrapreneurship and a passion for the place we call home.
This year the intrapreneurship award was presented to Cara McEown and Jenna McDougall of The Promise Partnership for their mentoring program, matching Saint John university students with elementary and middle school students at a neighbourhood school. "Thank you to our partner school, Hazen White-St. Francis, and to all our volunteers at UNB," said Program Coordinator, Jenna McDougall.
"Fusion's mandate is to make Saint John the premiere place to live, work, and play," said Fusion Chair Ross Horgan. "Thank you to JDI for your support of this event and sponsorship of this award."
