Joann Bannatyne-Cugnet

Quota International of Weyburn, SK

Jo Bannatyne-Cugnet has had an impact on the communities of Weyburn, Estevan, and Regina and the province. Active in Quota since the day she joined in 1994, Jo has chaired a major committee each year and has held the offices of vice president and president. She displays dedication, enthusiasm, creativity, and organizational skills and is further described as a “fund-raiser extraordinaire.” She is politically active, personally lobbying for causes such as school bus safety. Her softer side is seen as an empathetic and understanding friend and colleague, serving as a compassionate listener and a fountain of practical help. Although she has published five children’s books, with a sixth book due in fall ’03, her writing frequently falls to the back burner, due to her inability to say “no.” Even in her professional life, Jo is community- and service-minded. Valleyview Petroleums, an oil company formed by Jo and her husband Ken, is noted for its community involvement.
