Keith Wellon, B.Eng.'76, M.Eng.'79

Wellon, KeithMy career in senior management roles, coupled with my Board experience, will allow me to meaningfully contribute to the ongoing growth and success of MUN. MUN has been seeing the fruits of the very successful major fundraising campaign three years ago. New programs and infrastructure are allowing the Board of Regents the opportunity to lead to new levels of excellence and meaningful purpose. Also, the Board can continue to be inspired through the 100th anniversary years of the “event” in which the sacrifices of a whole generation were honored by the founding and naming of our institution.
