    Million-dollar SET FOR LIFE win in Red Deer!

    Alice Bilinski was sure her eyes were playing a trick on her after she uncovered three SET FOR LIFE symbols on her $5 SET FOR LIFE ticket and won $1 million.

    “I had a really hard time believing that I won,” she said. “It didn’t feel real to me. I felt like I was walking around in a fog for days after scratching my ticket.”

    Although it took a little time to get used to the idea of winning the lottery, Bilinski said she has come up with a few ideas for her winnings.

    “I have a couple of vacations in mind,” she said. “I have always wanted to go to the Kentucky Derby, and to see Greece. So I’ll definitely be taking a couple of awesome vacations soon.”

    The winner also plans to share her windfall with a very special person.

    “It’s important to me that I share of the money with my daughter,” she said. “I’m going to pay off her student loans – that’s something I’ve always wished I could do for her.”

    Bilinski purchased her winning SET FOR LIFE ticket at Shefield & Sons, located at 283-4747 67 Street in Red Deer.

  • From Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools

    To honour excellence in first-year teachers, the Board of Trustees has selected Ceanna Prediger from St. Joseph High School as Division finalist for the Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA) Edwin Parr Award.

    “When we heard that Ms. Prediger would be our division nominee for the Edwin Parr Award, we were very excited for her. Teaching is a complex act and one that requires teachers to be well prepared, thoughtful in curriculum delivery, have a deep understanding of their subject matter and most importantly, have a love for the students they teach. Ceanna exemplifies these qualities of a great teacher and one gift of hers that shines brightly on a daily basis is her kindness. This quote from Mother Teresa exemplifies Ceanna: ‘Be the living expression of God’s kindness, kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.’ The community of St. Joseph High School is truly blessed to have Ceanna as a teacher and colleague,” said Principal, Graeme Daniel at St. Joseph High School.
    Prediger was one of three teachers nominated for this award from across the Division. Nominees include:
    • Meagan Gabert, École Secondaire Notre Dame High School

    • Kelsey Paetz, St. Martin de Porres School
    “We selected Ceanna Prediger as our Edwin Parr Award winner due to her impressive overall accomplishments in her first year of teaching. Out of these many accolades, it was Ceanna’s support of our English Second Language students that spoke to us, which demonstrated her talents and passion for her profession,” said Vice-Chair Trustee, Murray Hollman at Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools.
