At the 49th JUNO Awards ceremony held on June 29th, 2020, you may have spotted a familiar face or two or more on the livestream broadcast. Allison Bernard Memorial High Schools’ Music and Technology teacher, Carter Chiasson, was the recipient of the MusiCounts Teacher of the Year award.
Originally scheduled to be held in Saskatoon in March of this year, the JUNO Awards were canceled due to safety concerns regarding Covid-19. Instead, the awards were announced during an online event this June. The MusiCounts Teacher of the Year award presentation occurred during the livestream broadcast between presentations for “Group of the Year” and “World Music Album of the Year”.
MusiCounts were in town in our community of Eskasoni this past February working with Carter and his students to produce a video package to accompany the presentation of the award, which can be seen here: 2020 MusiCounts Teacher of the Year - Carter Chiasson
It is so incredible to see our staff and students being recognized for their hard work and talent on a national stage.
Congratulations once again to Carter Chiasson, and all the students and staff at ABMHS!
