Melfort’s Junior Citizen of the Year has made a great impact on the community in a short time.

Josephina (Josey) Hovedestad, who is 15 years old and in Grade 10 at Melfort and Unit Comprehensive Collegiate (MUCC), was named the Junior Citizen of the Year after making impacts across various organizations through her commitment to volunteerism.

Hovedestad said she was shocked by the news. She first heard it while in the middle of class.

“I was like, ‘Oh my goodness.’ I was completely shocked,” she said. “I have been living in Melfort for the past three years and having this award given to me is such a big honour.”
