Former Dean of Education Recognized by Canadian Teacher's Federation
November 29, 2011
On November 25, former Dean of Education Dr. David Dibbon was awarded the Special Recognition Award by the Canadian Teacher's Federation. His family was on hand to accept the award in his honor, as Dr. Dibbon passed away late last year.
The Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers Association posthumously nominated Dr. Dibbon, who spent years in the school system as a teacher and administrator, this past summer. The award is presented annually to individuals for meritorious services to education and the teaching profession at the interprovincial, territorial, national, or international levels.
Dr. Dibbon became a faculty member in 2000, and was associate dean from 2004-2008. He served as Dean of Education from 2008-2010.
