The College is extending its thanks to Don MacDonald, who has retired from his position as Dean, School of Transportation, Aviation, and Manufacturing at Red River College effective October 5, 2017.
Don joined Red River College in 1997 as the Chair of the Mechanical, Manufacturing, and Communications department and became Dean in 2004.
Under Don’s leadership, RRC was able to successfully establish five major research, training, and education facilities, including the Centre for Aerospace Technology and Training at Standard Aero.
Throughout his career, Don not only helped lay the foundation to develop specialized contract training, but helped develop and expand many of RRC’s applied research and innovation initiatives while enhancing the learning environment and opportunities for our students.
The College thanks Don for his hard work and commitment to RRC, students and industry, and wishes him all the best in his retirement.
