CORNWALL, Ontario -There will continue to be a Cornwall flavour among the leaders at St. Lawrence College, as Marc Schaefer, a longtime public school board official and Seaway City resident takes over as board of governors chair.
He replaces Paul Fitzpatrick, former CAO with the City of Cornwall and resident of South Glengarry.
The college board consists of 12 community members, college president Glenn Vollebregt, and four members of the internal college community.
Schaefer, a board member for the past five years, retired from the Upper Canada District School Board as the superintendent of education in 1999. He continues to work as a consultant in the field of education.
One of the board's vice-chairs, Heather Lawless, is also a resident of the Cornwall area, and is the executive director of the Grenville Community Futures Development Corporation, based in Prescott and serving Grenville County.
