It was a real honour for the outgoing director of education at the Kenora Catholic District School Board. Last night, Phyllis Eikre received a Papal Blessing for her years of service with students.
"It is so amazing to realize that the Pope actually recognizes the years that I spent in Catholic education,"
Eikre had served with the board for more than 30 years, and it was her last board meeting last night.
She is succeeded in the position by Derek Haime.
