Sheldon Stashko, from Dauphin, received the Educational Assistant of the Year award.

He was recognized for his work helping students at the DRCSS.

Stashko gives his thoughts about what it means to be recognized for the award:

“It’s a great honour, it really is. It’s nice to be recognized for what you do. It’s nice for people outside of Winnipeg to be recognized for what they do, as well. It’s a double bonus.”

The award was announced at the Manitoba “Yes I Can” awards last Thursday.

Stashko works with extraordinary students to help them accomplish great things in their lives.
