Dr. Mary Joyce Booth was a devoted and enthusiastic educator, well known in Canadian Parents
for French circles for many years before her death on March 22, 2007. She was passionate about
promoting French-Second-Language (FSL) education. Dr. Booth was a professor of French in the
College of Education, Department of Curriculum Studies, at the University of Saskatchewan in
Saskatoon. She endlessly supported opportunities for young FSL students. She also provided
moral, professional, personal, and financial assistance to all levels of Canadian Parents for French
over the years. Her interest in FSL initiatives started early; her passion for language was her life’s
work. This award honours her memory.
