Nominations wanted for BSS Wall of Distinction

Nominations wanted for Barriere Secondary School Wall of Distinction

To Barriere residents;

Please we need your assistance.

Barriere Secondary’s Wall of Distinction Committee is looking for nominations for the Wall of Distinction for this year.

The criteria for nominations are:

• Attended schools in Barriere for 5 years or graduated from Barriere

• International, National, Provincial or Educational recognition in chosen fields of endeavor

• The individual has achieved significant status in Academics, Athletics, Arts, Humanitarian Activities or in Government/Labour/Industry

At this time, the committee is looking for nominations of individuals who attended BSS during the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s but will add more current students to the list for future consideration.  We would appreciate help from the community to find people who fit these criteria to keep adding to the wall every year.

Nomination papers can be downloaded from the Barriere Secondary website at or by contacting Jonathan Brady at 250-672-9943, or Joanne Stokes at 250-672-9941.

Your assistance with finding people for our Barriere Wall of Distinction will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much,

Joanne Stokes (Chair)
