The school library world was shocked and saddened last week with news of the sudden and unexpected passing of Kevin Mowat, Library Learning Consultant for the Winnipeg School Division.
Kevin was a unique leader, dedicated to education and specifically the unique contribution of school library programs. Most importantly he was dedicated to people. Kevin was a warm and generous leader, encouraging those he supported and helping them believe in themselves with humour and a kind word. Kevin’s influence extended nationally through associations and online networks, and he will be missed across the country.
Canadian School Libraries extends our condolences to Kevin’s family, and to the community of educators in Manitoba, Kevin’s extended professional family.
