Ben Malcolm Retires after 32 Years at CNC
Ben Malcolm, CNC’s Executive Vice-President Academic, has retired after 32 years at the College. He spent 28 years as a chemistry instructor before becoming a Dean in 2001, then Vice President in 2002. During his years as a teacher he taught every chemistry course the college offered, and won the affection and respect of generations of students. He was also active in the CNC faculty association.
Ben met his wife Judy, a math teacher, at the College. The couple has four grown sons and are about to become grandparents. During retirement, they plan to enjoy a West Coast lifestyle in Nanaimo.
About 150 people attended a farewell get-together for Ben at the College on December 14. Among the attendees were Charles Jago, President of UNBC, and Howard Brunt, UNBC’s VP Academic.
Ben is regarded by his students, his colleagues, and those in the community as a person of integrity, humour, and warmth—he will be very much missed.
