Kim Kruithof – District 1 Ontario North East
Kim Kruithof has been dedicated to working on causes related to the status of women both at the provincial level, and the local level.
Kim is well recognized on the provincial Status of Women committee as a long-standing member who began as the Status of Women Liaison to Provincial Council. One particular initiative outside of the Federation/school structure that Kim has dedicated countless hours to is the Miss Northern Ontario pageant. Kim's focus in this regard is not only on the glamour associated with such an event, but also on developing young women who can address/engage a crowd, along with celebrating their many accomplishments and talents.
In addition, Kim continually collects unused hygiene products at every OSSTF/FEESO event and then delivers those products to local women’s shelters in Northern Ontario. Kim has selflessly contributed to the advancement of causes unique to women and is the well-deserved recipient of this award.
