Jill Hayward has infinite pride for the community of Barriere and its surrounding area. Editor of the North Thompson Star Journal, Jill has never backed away from a challenge and has never failed to gather a team together that will succeed. North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association, McLure Wildfire Monument Society, Rural Crime Watch, and Learning and Literacy have all benefitted from Jill’s leadership. But it is her commitment to the North Thompson Agriplex that is exceptional. This state of the art facility attracts agricultural and trade show events and serves as a community centerpiece. Jill was critical to its development and she continues to grow its reputation.
