Community Service Award

Toastmasters Meetings



Michelle Spear, DTM

Winner of the 2022 District 123

Community Service Award

Mike Shoreman

This award is intended to honour a Toastmaster who has made substantial and widespread contributions to the well being of their local community as a result of utilizing their Toastmasters training in communications and leadership.


The nomination for Michelle Spear, DTM, for the Community Service Award was certainly a glowing one!  Michelle has been actively involved with Sister2Sister, a leadership development program for immigrant women, coaching them to tell their own stories with confidence and courage. Her contributions have been so successful that 85% of respondents rated their level of confidence between 7-10 (on a scale of 10), where only 5% had done so previously.  In addition to receiving the Community Service Award as District 123’s first recipient, Michelle was also awarded the “Extraordinary Volunteer Service” Award for her role as such an inspiring sister.


Thank you, Michelle, for the difference you’re making in the community with your communication and leadership skills!
