Honouring former Education Director, Monty Palmantier

 

Monty joined Lake Babine Nation (LBN) in 1992 as a teacher / co-principal for Fort Babine Elementary and since worked with several programs within the Education department. Monty had taught many courses and supervised a staff of 4 while directing Ted Williams Memorial Learning Centre (TWMLC). Monty is the forefather of Education for LBN and a strong pillar of delivering quality education for LBN Members. Through Monty’s hard work and dedication, many programs arose to benefit all students. With Monty’s guidance, the following programs have been a success:

  • Ted Williams Memorial Learning Centre
  • K’ay Skak
  • Blade Runners
  • Developmental Standard Term Certificate (DSTC) tripartite agreement with UNBC and CNC
  • Morris Williams Elementary School (MWES)
  • New school for Fort Babine Elementary (within 1 year)
  • New School Buses for MWES
  • Worked with several educational institutions to advocate for LBN Education (FNESC, FNSA, Indian Studies Support Programs Committee, IAHLA)

We will miss Monty in the Education Department and wish him all the best in his future endeavours with Lake Babine Nation, Mesiy!
