Sept. 6 will be a day of new beginnings at Lethbridge College. That’s the day when more than 1,500 students will attend New Student Orientation as well as the first day of work for the college’s new President and CEO, Dr. Brad Donaldson. Dr. Donaldson, who most recently worked as Vice President – Academic at SAIT in Calgary, says he is looking forward to continuing to build the college’s reputation as a leader in postsecondary education in Alberta.
Dr. Donaldson had a lengthy career in manufacturing before moving to post-secondary 17 years ago. He was born in England, lived in Singapore and the United Kingdom, and then emigrated to southern Ontario with his parents and sister. Dr. Donaldson, his wife Gail, and their two daughters came to Alberta in 2005. He is a dog lover, with two dogs of his own and two grand-dogs. As avid travellers, he and Gail have visited every continent except Antarctica.
