ReflectionsEarly days and early meetings of the Georgian College Board of Governors, by Penny Broderick
At one of the early meetings of the Georgian College Board of Governors, it was moved and passed that all staff hired between a date in 1967 and September 1968 be considered “founding members of the college.” Don McKillican, in his article Education in the Marketplace, refers to this meeting and gives more specific dates. I’m not sure of the first one, but am quite sure the “closing” date was September 1968. In general, the span was to be within the first year of the college’s existence. I started at the college in July 1968, and Lee Cameron started shortly after. We laughed about getting in “just under the wire” to give us founding member status – two maritime imports, Lee from Nova Scotia Technical College, and myself, from the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton.
I’m not sure when Don joined Georgian, but mostly remember that Robert Crawford (President), Lee, Al Cuzen, Don Garrie, Wayne Cunningham, Kaye Bentley, Muriel Perry (Harper), Betty Hanson, Dave Stock and others were there.
