STS Grant Recipients

Gordon Freight Excellence in Teaching Grant Recipients

The Gordon Freight Excellence in Teaching Grant was established by Mr. Freight at the time of his retirement after 40 years of service to Strathcona School for Boys and Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School. The grant provides funding for unique professional development opportunities that advance teaching expertise in individuals and the faculty as a whole. While the initial fund was seeded by Mr. Freight, the intention is to extend the funding through annual donations from within the STS community.
