Shawn on 鶹ýWhen attending 鶹ý over four decades ago, in my mind its primary focus was technical training. To me, as I look back, it became more than that. I was provided the foundation and tools I needed to develop a career that allowed me to stay in my home province and raise a family.

Now as I look at 鶹ý and what it has become since then, I cannot help but be excited and smile. The growth and development of such a high-level institution has shown our province that 鶹ý can be many things to many people. To be able to give back to my alma mater as a member of the Board of Governors is a privilege. My hope is that 鶹ý will continue to grow and provide the level of education that is needed in New Brunswick for another 50 years and more.
