Sharron Higgins jump started the health promoting schools movement in the Capital Regional District and in British Columbia.
With a strong career as a Public Health Nurse she encouraged many school and community workshops on the nature of inclusiveness, engagement, and community development. Sharron worked collaboratively in SD 61 to foster a Comprehensive School Health model within the education community. In many school districts in BC, educators from various disciplines followed Sharron’s leadership that would benefit many children and families in the ensuing years.
In this 60th Anniversary year of the Public Health Association of BC, we want to recognize Sharron for her work in this expanded field of public heath nursing practice.
