The grace and ease that Tina Fox emulates as a community leader has long been noted and it’s landed her another notable award.

Fox, a residential school survivor and active Stoney Nakoda Nation community member, was selected from six nominees as the recipient of the 2017 Rotary Club of Cochrane’s Integrity Award.

Nothing about Fox’s life made maintaining personal integrity easy. However, she credits the injustices and turmoil she suffered as a driving force for her to find truth.

“It’s an honour,” Fox said. “To be recognized, to have your integrity no matter what happens – even if you’re the only one standing up. I don’t follow the crowd or I don’t fear standing up alone.”
