Education has been Doug’s life. He retired from teaching after a very rewarding 33 year career and, in 2000, was elected as a Trustee to Foothills School Division. Doug served as Board Chair from 2007 – 2010.
Doug has always been involved in community activities — everything from coaching sports and volunteering for a wide range of local service organizations including Town committees such as the Recreation Board and Municipal Planning Commission to hospital fundraising and helping with activities sponsored by the Agricultural Society and Chamber of Commerce. He served as a Director with the Foothills Country Hospice Society, on the executive of the Rotary Club and as a director with the Provincial School Boards Association of Alberta (PSBAA).
The Provincial Alberta Home & School Council’s Association has honoured Doug with their President’s Award, in recognition of his support for parents in Public Education.
Doug and his wife Janet have two grown daughters and are very proud grandparents.
