The award asked a question in brief essay form of DCL members and their relatives attending post secondary education or career training this fall – “tell us about the impact of a father figure on your life.”

Kalei Pitre, daughter of DCL member and chef extraordinaire Mike, brought a tear to the collective eyes of judges with her entry about her own father.
