Devoted volunteer honoured with award from Governor General.

Tanyss Bell Phillips of St. Andrew's Church, Saskatoon, has received the Governor General's Caring Canadian Award for her 40 years of volunteer work for the church and her community. She was presented with the award on Jan. 24, 2004, by Governor General Adrienne Clarkson during a four-day visit to Saskatoon.

The Caring Canadian Award was established in 1995 by former governor general Romeo LeBlanc to honour those he called "the unsung heroes of our country." It is intended for individuals whose unpaid, voluntary contributions behind the scenes provide extraordinary care or help to individuals or groups in the community.

A retired economist, Mrs. Phillips has served in numerous volunteer roles with the church. She has been a member of the senate of the University of Saskatchewan, the council of the Canada West Foundation and is currently a member of the Saskatoon branch of the Canadian Institute of International Affairs. She was also an active worker for the Salvation Army for 20 years.
