Artist and Teacher Grace MacLeod Roberts Honoured With Shadow Box at Battista Library at CCVS in Cornwall Ontario – July 4, 2011
Cornwall ON –The Battista Library at CCVS in Cornwall Ontario was the spot for an unveiling and honoring of a very special person. Grace MacLeod Roberts; long time teacher at the school who passed away in 1982 was honoured with a Shadow Box prepared lovingly by teachers Betty Carter-Edwards and Kaylynn Helmer. The box itself was furnished by Dempsters Framing on Pitt Street.
Liberal MPP Jim Brownell was present to say a few words of tribute along with Cornwall City Councilor Glen Grant and former teacher and contemporary of Ms MacLeod Roberts; Verna Levere. It’s a true testament to the area’s commitment to Arts and Culture, and to a teacher still remembered for touching so many lives so many years after she has passed.
A painting from “Gracie” as she was lovingly referred to that had been in the possession of local Artist Joan Levy Earle was presented with the Shadow box as well.
