Brock alumni living in western Canada gathered this fall to welcome Brock’s new President and Vice Chancellor, Dr. Jack Lightstone.
As part of a President’s Alumni Forum series planned by the Office of Alumni Relations, the President and his wife Dr. Dorothy Markewicz along with Christine Jones, Director, Alumni Relations, began the tour on November 14 in Calgary. Forum events were also held in Edmonton and Vancouver. Distinguished graduates Dr. Ian Beddis (Calgary), Dr. Paul Byrne (Edmonton) and Rick Trus (Vancouver) introduced the new president and his wife to alumni attending the Forums.
The purpose of the Forum is to have the President discuss the growth and change at Brock University and share his personal thoughts and respond to questions on the vision and future plans for Brock. Through the Forum, Dr. Lightstone hopes to engage graduates in helping to identify ways they can help the University realize its full potential.
The Forum series continues in the New Year. Dr. Jack Lightstone will be hosting the following President’s Alumni Forums:
