Foundation office staff:

Tracy Poulin

Tracy has worked for Edmonton Public Schools for more than 25 years in various positions: elementary teacher, assistant principal and, for the past five years, as Principal at Oliver School. In between her leadership appointments, she took a short leave to complete a Master’s Degree at the University of Alberta, during which time she also became a sessional instructor. Community involvement plays an important role in her life and she is currently the Education Director on the Board of Directors for the No Stone Left Alone Memorial Foundation. Tracy genuinely values the power of partnerships and the significance of early learning intervention as a way of creating pathways for student success.


“I believe that it takes an entire community to raise a child and it is our responsibility to ensure that every student has access to a quality educational experience.”

Alva Shewchuk

With 20 plus years of experience in communications and community relations, Alva has worked at Alberta Education and Edmonton Public Schools to help students succeed. Along with being actively involved in the Association of Fund Raising Professionals and Chrysalis Edmonton, Alva is also a serial volunteer. In addition to the multiple committees to which she commits her time, each year she welcomes a MacEwan University practicum student from the Public Relations or Communications programs to come work with her at the Foundation and has had a longstanding relationship with Hana, a student she met through the Boys & Girls Clubs and Big Brothers Big Sisters in-school mentoring program at John A. McDougall School. 

“Being part of something that positively impacts the lives of children and youth is near and dear to my heart!”
