Description : Former Teacher Gets Queen's Jubilee Medal
Miss Barbara Stewart, former Bradford public school teacher, has been awarded the Queen's Silver Jubilee Medal.
Miss Stewart, who retired last year after 36 years of teaching, said from her Markham home Friday, "I don't know how I got it or who recommended me. It came by registered mail last month and it was a complete surprise."
She joins Bradford lawyer Charles Evans as a recipient of the medal, awarded to persons who have made outstanding contributions to the community.
She said she had just returned from a trip to Germany, and would soon go back to Bradford public school for a day to tell the students about her trip.
As for retirement, "I'm just loving every bit of it."
