Dawne McLean has been named the recipient of the 2018 Molly Kool Award. A retired schoolteacher, Dawne has spent decades enriching the com- munity fabric of Albert County―both in her professional and personal en- deavours―all while embodying the selfless, humble spirit of Molly Kool.
Dawne has an interesting, personal connection with Molly Kool. As a student at the University of New Brunswick, she spent summers working at Fundy National Park’s Visitor Centre where she became good friends with Molly’s sister, Jean Beaumont. Dawne even had the opportunity to meet Molly Kool during one of Molly’s trips home.
A plaque with Dawne’s name will be installed in the Molly Kool Centre in Alma with a matching plaque at Moncton's Resurgo Place. The Molly Kool Award was established to recognize women in southeastern New Brunswick who have made outstanding contributions to the community. It is presented by the Friends of Fundy/Fundy Guild Inc. and generously sponsored by Armour Transportation Systems.
