April 21, 2006 - Johner presented Saskatchewan Centennial Medal
At an elaborate ceremony in Saskatoon, Brad Johner was presented with The Saskatchewan Centennial Medal by the Lieutenant-Governor of Saskatchewan, Linda Haverstock.
The award was presented in recognition of Johner?s outstanding musical achievements and his contributions to the province through his many charitable works and involvements.
"It?s a wonderful honour to be recognized by the province," commented Johner. "My music has taken me right across Canada and around the world, and it?s always great to tell people I?m from Saskatchewan, a place hardly no one can spell."
Centennial Medal recipients are selected based on the recommendation of the Saskatchewan government and non-government organizations and Members of the Legislative Assembly. The Government of Canada has granted recognition to the medal in the national precedence of orders, decorations and medals.
"The Saskatchewan Centennial Medal honours individuals for their outstanding contributions," Haverstock said. "We can take great pride in the extraordinary people who call Saskatchewan home."
