On Nov. 25, Quebec Premier Francois Legault announced the recipients of this years’ Youth Recognition Awards, a list which includes Phelps Helps’ own Katie Lowry.
“I’m very touched to receive the award,” said Lowry. “I’ve been working with Phelps and the community almost a decade and having this recognition for the time, energy, and work means a lot.”
The Youth Recognition Awards recognize achievement in five categories that are aligned with the targets of the Quebec 2030 Youth Policy; health, education, citizenship, employment, and entrepreneurship. Both a youth worker and a young person were awarded in each category, with Lowry being recognized under the employment category for her dedication to young people’s success and support during their transition into the job market.
