Fisher River member Melissa Herda received the Operator of Year Award at the 14th Annual Water & Waterwaste Symposium held at the Victoria Inn in Winnipeg.
This award is handed each year from the Manitoba First Nation Water and Wastewater Instruction Program. The award recipient is chosen by all the instructors of this program.
Melissa is a level 2 certified operator of both water and wastewater; she is the only Female level 2 operator in all of the Manitoba’s First Nations and we are waiting for confirmation but we are almost 100% that she is the only Female level 2 operator Canada wide on First Nations that does water and wastewater.
Congratulations Melissa on this achievement from the members of Fisher River Cree Nation!
