College President Tenders Resignation

The Honourable Darin King, Minister of Education, announced today that Jean Madill, President and CEO of College of the North Atlantic, has tendered her resignation which has been accepted by the Provincial Government. A search will begin immediately for an interim president, while Deputy Minister of Education Darrin Pike will assume the role of Acting President.

Minister King noted that College of the North Atlantic is one of the province's greatest investments and greatest achievements. The total college allocation in Budget 2010: The Right Investments — For Our Children and Our Future, exceeds $100 million — a clear indication of the importance the province places on the vital research and learning being done at the college's 17 campuses.

"There is no question we value College of the North Atlantic and want to see it continue to grow," said Minister King. "While it is important to have a interim president in place as quickly as possible, we are confident there are individuals of a high calibre that will be interested in and able to fill this important position — leading a nationally and internationally renowned college system."
