"Mr. McLennon is a role model and strong advocate of the School Safety Patrol program. He encourages his students to demonstrate commitment, passion and pride in everything they do," said Darryl Forde, Principal, Chief Dan George Public School. "Mr. McLennon is a well-liked and respected teacher who leads by example."
