Tonight we celebrated Margaret White’s loyal and dedicated contribution to SCOLA over 24 years. Margaret has worked at SCOLA since 1985 initally as a part time tutor and ultimately having a successful career rising to the position of Strategic Director. It is evident that during the time she has spent at the college that she has always been the friendly face of SCOLA, supporting staff and being there for students, particularly by running the Student Focus Groups.
Margaret played a key role in developing and promoting a successful marketing strategy, also guiding and supporting events which are a key part of that strategy. Colleagues and students alike have told me that Margaret has also been one of the first people to step forward to support any new initiative.
It was a great event where many staff, past and present, came to bid farewell to Margaret and to wish her the very best for her future and to wish her a happy and long retirement. She will be missed at SCOLA and I am glad that she will be coming back to teach at SCOLA next year.
It was great to have such a marvellous do for Margaret and I enjoyed the line dancing routines which added more flavour to the occasion.
