2022 John R. Rhodes Scholarship Dinner
The John R. Rhodes Scholarship was established in 1979 through generous donations from friends and family of the late John Rhodes. This prestigious scholarship, valued at $3,000 is offered annually to a student entering their first year of university studies from secondary school who has demonstrated academic achievement and community leadership while involved in political, social, or academic activities. Algoma University proudly hosts the annual John R. Rhodes Scholarship Dinner.
The 2022 John R. Rhodes Scholarship Dinner honouree is Diane Marshall. Diane has been described as an extraordinary person, and for good reason. Her genuine compassion has led her to very fulfilling careers as an educator and a community volunteer.
Diane began her teaching career in 1963, and quickly became drawn to helping students with special education requirements. After nearly 20 years in the classroom Diane would move into administration, leading opportunities to establish a gifted program, and introducing a new curriculum – a time that she refers to as “her career highlight”. Throughout her career Diane would serve on, and lead, many Ministry of Education committees at the regional, provincial and international levels. Her expertise would also be used to help future educators as she accepted teaching and administrative roles with the Faculty of Education Departments both at Nipissing University and Lake Superior State University.
