In 1997, Jack Matheson was presented with the Samuel McLeod Legacy Award. It was quite an honor and Jack was humbled.
These Prince Albert Business Awards are named in honour of Samuel McLeod, one of the city's early settlers and entrepreneurs.
Samuel McLeod was a hero to the locals at the turn of the 20th century. Following the collapse of the Lacolle Falls project in 1918, he pledged his personal credit to prevent Prince Albert schools from closing.
It is the legacy of Samuel McLeod’s pioneering spirit, entrepreneurship, civic leadership and unfailing faith in Prince Albert that propels the Prince Albert Daily Herald to recognize business men and women who support this city the way Samuel McLeod did.
Jack Matheson is one of those individuals and we, his family, were very proud that he won this award.
