Winnipeg culture maven receives prestigious award

  • Print

MANITOBA Museum executive director Claudette Leclerc received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal Wednesday for her outstanding contributions to arts, heritage and educational organizations in Canada.

Over the last almost three decades Leclerc has led three local, non-profit organizations: Winnipeg International Children's Festival, Folk Arts Council of Winnipeg and Manitoba Museum. She is also a board member of the Canadian Association of Science Centres, and a former board member of the Canadian Museum Association and Travel Manitoba.

In a press release Leclerc, who was in Ottawa to receive her medal at a ceremony that is part of the CMA annual meeting, said she was deeply honoured to receive the recognition.

"Manitoba's cultural and heritage organizations make an important contribution to our economy; they provide great educational opportunities, and improve the province's quality of life," she said. "Being able to make a difference in our community is the best reward I can be given."
