"Jamie’s was our only outing and outlet for three years. It gave us connections with others we will cherish for life. Jamie's made everything that seemed so very wrong in the world at that time OK."

Jamie's founder honoured for community service 

Sheri Ewing, president of Jamie's Preschool since she founded the school with other parents more than 25 years ago, has been recognized by the governments of Canada and Alberta for outstanding public service. Sheri was presented with a Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal by Premier Alison Redford and Lieutenant-Governor Donald Ethell in a ceremony in Calgary last November, in honour of her significant achievements and contributions to the community. Sheri is also the longtime nursing co-ordinator at Hull Family Services, and has served in a staff and volunteer capacity with various other child health and welfare agencies, including Children's Cottage Society. Created in 2012 to mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne, the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal honours Her Majesty’s service and the enduring relationship between Canada and the Crown, while acknowledging significant contributions by Canadians. During the year of celebrations, 60,000 deserving Canadians were recognized in ceremonies nationwide, including more than 600 Albertans.
