I’m pleased to announce the appointment of Rodger Wright as Special Adviser to the Vice-Principal, Advancement and Strategy. In this role he’ll be assisting with alumni relations, donor relations and strategic planning.
Rodger is a well-known member of the Class of ’70 and a Herbert Mason Award winner. Immediately following his graduation from the University of Toronto in 1974, Rodger returned to Upper Canada College for almost a decade. He was a faculty member, then head of the physical education department, coached many sports and was senior housemaster of Seaton’s.
Rodger left UCC in 1983 to become head of Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ont., a role he held for 21 years. Following his terms at TCS, Rodger became head of Collingwood School in Vancouver, a co-ed independent school, for the next 12 years. Rodger retired from Collingwood this past June and relocated to Toronto over the summer.
Rodger starts his new role on Monday, Sept. 12. on a half-time basis. We’re most fortunate to have the opportunity to bring Rodger back to UCC, and to have his passion and wise counsel available to us going forward.
Please join me in welcoming Rodger back to 200 Lonsdale!
