Alumni

Congratulations on 50 years! Life has come full circle for me! I graduated from Durham College in 1991 from the Early Childhood Education (ECE) program and worked in the field for 25 years! I have now come back to where it all began and am working as part time faculty in the ECE program and loving it!


Retirees

Introducing myself to Vivian Stansbury, DC’s long-serving and outstanding receptionist (aka Front Line General), asking her, “Where are the plug-ins?”. Coming from the north, I had only lived where every parking spot had an electric post to plug in your car heater. You can imagine how long the news took to fly that the Board had hired a hick (which was the truth).


Retirees

I have countless memories of the college I love so deeply, such as arriving at DC’s Staff Appreciation event on September 23, 1984 and asking that a TV be set up so that we could all watch Ben Johnson’s famous race which he won, of course, and I pronounced was an omen – until the next morning.

My first time exploring the beautiful campus, my first 100% assignment score that I got in years, winning two prizes at Durham College’s Juried Art Show


Employees

I recall teaching in an interior classroom in the Simcoe building when the power went out across the eastern seaboard. I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face. I called to a colleague down the hall who was also teaching and fortunately she had a tealight in her cabinet and we were able to all have light to get out of the building safely.
