Musician Robb Nash will be invested into the Order of Manitoba this summer.

The Kleefeld native is one of 12 Manitobans to be recognized by Lt.-Gov. Janice C. Filmon with the honour this year. After surviving a near-fatal accident, Nash began speaking to youth, playing songs intended to inspire discussion about important issues such as bullying, addiction, self-harm and suicide. Over the past five years, more than 800 students have relinquished their planned suicide notes to him and hundreds more have stopped self-harming behaviours.

Order of Manitoba recipients will be recognized at a special ceremony on July 12.

The Order of Manitoba, the province’s highest honour, was established in 1999 to recognize Manitobans who have demonstrated excellence and achievement, thereby enriching the social, cultural or economic well-being of the province and its residents.
