Franco-American of the Year 2022
With input from the community, the Nominating Committee for the Franco American of the Year chose to bestow the honor in 2022 on Mrs. Claudette M. Gagnon in recognition for her zeal in promoting her heritage and the French language. To accomplish this task, she chose to become a member of Le Cercle Jeanne Mance, a francophone organization for women of which she has served 11 years as President.  On an annual basis Le Cercle Jeanne-Mance awards scholarships to students who will further their studies of the French language.
