Alumna Wanda Koop selected for Order of Manitoba
“While the individual accomplishments of the women and men recommended this year for investiture are wide ranging, they share a common spirit of giving and commitment to community for which Manitobans are known,” said Lt.-Gov. Janice Filmon, chancellor of the order. “Whether their impact is felt at the local, national or international levels, they are each a credit to our province and our country.”
The ceremony will be held July 7 at the Manitoba Legislative Building.
