Mohawk to host Appsforhealth.ca Challenge for health care and technology students

The following announcement was made by Mohawk President Rob MacIsaac:

"I am pleased to announce that Wayne Joudrie is joining Mohawk College as President of the Mohawk College Foundation, effective April 4, 2011.

Wayne has been hired on a part‐time, two‐year contract to review and assess the current capacity of the Foundation and the Development office of the College, provide recommendations regarding enhancements in structure, business processes and service delivery and lead their implementation.

Wayne is likely familiar to many of you as the highly regarded former Director of Education with the Halton District School Board. He brings over 30 years of experience in the educational sector, and has been a key contributor to numerous strategic initiatives in Ontario education. On a volunteer basis, he has been very active in the Burlington, Hamilton, Ancaster and Brantford communities. With the combination of skills and experience he holds, Wayne will bring valuable perspective and insight with respect to development and building of key partnerships.

Effective Monday, the staff in the Development office will report to Wayne, with Anne Marie Peirce retaining a seat on the Student Services Management Team to continue that working liaison. Wayne Poirier, the Vice President, Student Services, will retain the long‐term accountability for the Development Office and the relationship with the Foundation, and will remain as Chair of the Campaign Cabinet.

I am very excited that we have been able to attract Wayne to Mohawk College and I look forward to his leadership in this key priority area for the College.

Please join me in welcoming Wayne to Mohawk College."
