All of us in Geography congratulate Élizabeth on reaching this milestone!

Dr. Jo Shawyer’s tireless work has had a lasting impact on the historic presentation of local communities, the quality of our province’s museums, and the understanding of our agricultural heritage. The creativity, accessibility and high standards of her work has led to many successful projects that engaged the Newfoundland and Labrador public with the province’s unique heritage.
