Greg Tucker, currently teaching at Oromocto high school, is this year’s recipient of the prestigious G. Forbes Elliot Award for Educational Leadership awarded by UNB.
 
This annual award, which carries an approximate value of $5,000, was established in 1994 as a bequest of the late Dr. G. Forbes Elliot, a prominent Canadian educator, Saint John resident, and the first vice-president of UNB in Saint John.
 
To be eligible for this award, an applicant must have taught for a minimum of five years in the public schools of New Brunswick, have demonstrated leadership in the field of education, and plan to pursue graduate studies in education at UNB.
 
Mr. Tucker’s numerous activities at the school level regarding sports and student involvement exemplify the qualities outlined in the award.  He has also developed and taught a new English course on graphic novels that has been accepted by St. Thomas University as a course acceptable for university entrance.
 
Mr. Tucker was also the recipient of the NBTA Excellence in Teaching Award (2008) and the District 17 Physical Education Teacher of the Year Award (2007).
 
The selection committee felt very strongly that Mr. Tucker demonstrated the leadership qualities and ideals of the G. Forbes Elliot Award.
