Regatta committee presents plaque

L-R: Edgar Williams, Dr. Axel Meisen and Keith Renouf

The organizing committee of the Royal St. John’s Regatta presented a plaque to Memorial in recognition of the university’s gold level sponsorship of the annual sporting event (North America’s oldest!) – providing a co-op student to support the work of the committee. On hand to present the plaque to Memorial President Dr. Axel Meisen were Edgar Williams (L), Memorial’s Department of Mathematics and Statistics and treasurer of the 2003 Royal St. John’s Regatta Committee and Keith Renouf (R), 2003 Regatta Committee president. Dr. Williams commented that the work experience provided to the students was so varied and extensive that “at the end of this, you should be able to run your own business.” To date seven students have worked for summers with the committee, acting as office manager and marketing co-ordinator. They also volunteer to take crew bookings and oversee the Regatta’s museum.
