Mandi Rietmann

The Clearview Star Award recognizes staff and community members who have made significant contributions to Clearview’s school communities through volunteerism, as a community partner, or have supported our schools at the school level.

Mandi Rietmann is a teacher at Big Valley School and a volunteer at the Big Valley library.

Rietmann says she is surprised, humbled and honoured to receive the Clearview Star Award.

“I feel very fortunate to work with such great community members and colleagues who deserve this award just as much as I do and have been instrumental in getting me to where I am today,” says Rietmann.

Stettler Regional Fire Chief, President of Stettler Minor Football and Wildcats coach, Mark Dennis, is the recipient of a Clearview Star Award.

“Volunteers make an immense contribution to the vitality and success of our communities and schools,” says Guy Neitz, Clearview Board Chair and Stettler Wildcats coach. “Mark Dennis was instrumental in the procurement and installation of the track and football field lights at Wm. E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus.”

“It really was a community effort,” says Mark Dennis, Clearview Star Award recipient. “The vision for the project was already in place, and many volunteers and community members contributed to this project. I couldn’t have done it without so many contributing to the work.”

Katie Bainbridge nominated Dennis, and gives him credit for the work of bringing everyone together.

“Mark spearheaded the effort,” says Bainbridge. “He took what had been talked about and made it happen.”
