Tributes have been paid to the chair of North Island College's board of governors, Judith Round, at an event to mark the end of her two-year term of office.
College president Dr. Jan Lindsay told senior staff and governors that in her experience it was unique that the chair of the board had been a college president herself, so understood well the issues, challenges and opportunities in post-secondary institutions.
She praised Round for her commitment and dedication to supporting college activities and events on all parts of the Island.
Vice-chair Bruce Calder said Round’s judgment and knowledge, her consensus-building skills, and her passion to encourage students at every level had served the college well.
In response, Round praised staff for their efforts and fellow governors for the way they had worked together to support a dynamic and forward-thinking institution under the new leadership of Dr. Lindsay.
Round has been asked to stay on as a board member for a further year, while away from the college she will continue to serve as a B.C. Marriage Commissioner.
A new chair will be elected when the college board next meets Sept. 28.
