Teresa Spinelli, recipient of the 2018 Dr. Charles Allard Chair in Business award at Grant MacEwan University. I had the honour of attending the reception tonight for Teresa, President of The Italian Centre Shop. Fifteen years ago I wrote, produced and showcased my play at the Edmonton Fringe Festival. Teresa supported me when nobody wanted to, and I never forgot that. How fitting it was today to be honouring such an amazing and big hearted woman on International Women’s Day! Congratulations Teresa!
