(Headingley, MB) - January 31st, 2023 Please join the Board of Directors of Agriculture in the Classroom – Canada in extending best wishes to Johanne Ross, who will step back from AITC-C after seven years as the Founding Executive Director of our organization. Her final day of work will be February 9, 2023.
Johanne was instrumental to the establishment and growth of our fledgling national organization. Among her many accomplishments, she raised the profile of Agriculture in the Classroom at the national level and secured significant financial support from Agriculture and Agri-food Canada as well as many sector partners, to support our critical mission of creating agriculture and food literate citizens. Johanne came to our organization after 16 years as the Executive Director of Agriculture in the Classroom in Manitoba, her home province. In 2021, she was inducted in the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame in recognition of her contributions to the Canadian agriculture and food sector.
The Board thanks Johanne for her many years of dedicated service. We wish her well in her future endeavours!
