From 1999 to 2004, Donna was President & CEO and Chair for each of the three volunteer Boards of Calgary French & International School. She was the driving force behind CFIS’s new vision and transformation that included the financing and construction of a $20 million facility and campus completed in 2005.
In recognition of Donna’s extraordinary leadership and contribution, the Donna S. Finley Student Award for Excellence in Leadership was first awarded in June 2005.
This award is presented annually to one CFIS graduating student who demonstrates exceptional leadership skills and qualities.
The Calgary French & International School is Alberta’s top-ranked French immersion school and an average of 9th among the over 500 schools measured in the province. www.cfis.com
