Sue Goldman says “farewell”

A retirement party was hosted for Counsellor Sue Goldman on May 30th in T-304.  We linked up with Sue who wanted to convey a personal farewell message to the College community.  This is what Sue had to say.

Brenda Chartrand shares a few of her Algonquin memorable moments with us…

I have grown up in the Pembroke Algonquin Family! I graduated from the Secretarial Science Program in 1975 and was hired at that time.  For many years, I was secretary to Frank Havey, the Campus Director, before moving on to Finance.  One of my best memories is that Frank arranged for me to work a 4 day work week while my sons were young.  He knew how important my family was to me.  In my job, I have been able to meet with students at Open House or Games Day, then follow their progress until they walk across the stage at on Graduation Day.
