Sent on behalf of Patrick Keyes, Executive Director (A), Provincial and Demonstration Schools Branch

Hello everyone,

I am pleased to announce that Sherry Eacrett was the successful candidate in the recent competition for the position of Residence Manager at the London campus. Sherry graduated in 2004 from Wilfred Laurier University with honours in Sociology. Over the years, Sherry has worked extensively with children and adults with various profiles and needs. Sherry has been working at the OPS for nine years including four year as a Residence Co-ordinator at W. Ross Macdonald School where she was responsible for the deafblind residence. Sherry’s vision will continue to put students needs and learning in the forefront and she is an added value to the team. 

Please join me in welcoming Sherry in her new role.
