Russ was selected for the award for his many years of involvement with the Michener Awards. He has been President of the Michener Awards Foundation since 2010.
The Michener Awards Foundation honours, celebrates and promotes excellence in Canadian public service journalism and was established in 1970 by the late Right Honourable Roland Michener, Governor General of Canada from 1967 to 1974.
We congratulate Russ on receiving this prestigious award!
