Regional Recipient

Barry Thimer

Increased interest in science along with physics marks 13 percent higher than the provincial average are hallmarks of Barry Thimer's career as the only physics teacher at Sturgeon Composite High School in Namoa, Alberta. It is obvious Mr. Thimer positively influences many of his students: nearly two thirds of the 1993 Sturgeon graduates went on to study science at university. They've also benefitted from his work on the physics curriculum and in improving the quality of textbooks and lab equipment.
