About Ron

Founding member of ICAL

After retiring from a teaching career at Kwantlen University College, Ron has volunteered to help the Intergenerational Project because he sees mutual benefit for youth and older adults when they have the opportunity to interact. However, in the past, there have been no organizations devoted to promote and assist these interactions.

His past activities include: an assistant director of sports at the Manitoba Home for Boys, the principal of a K-12 school, and as a psychometrician and counselor with the Saskatoon Public School Board before joining the Douglas College/Kwantlen College faculty.

Ron is the father of three children and, with his wife Gloria, grandparent to 10.
