Share

Former Grand Chief of the Grand Council of the Cree Abel Bosum and his daughter Mrs. Irene Bosum-Quinn visited John Abbott College on March 24 for a tour of the campus facilities and a discussion of John Abbott programs.

Abel Bosum has been a significant figure in Cree political and community life for over four decades. Mr. Bosum and Mrs. Bosum-Quinn are interested in facilitating and encouraging the recruitment and retention of Cree students for John Abbott, in conjunction with the community’s Elders and its education sector.

Our guests toured the Nursing, Paramedic Care, Police Technology, and YACI areas, followed by informative discussions with Nursing teachers Kim Martin, Samantha Cadotte, and Polina Belts, Jeffery Brown of Paramedic Care, Anila Hasko of Dental Hygiene, Anne-Marie Gremeaux of Youth and Adult Correctional Intervention, Police Technology teacher Jean-Marc Michaud, and Dean of the Career, Pathways, and Crossroads Programs Douglas Brown, as well as with Crossroads coordinator Lisa Szabo-Jones, ReconciliAction Committee chairperson Derek Maisonville, and Academic Dean Gordon Brown.

Mr. Bosum and Mrs. Bosum-Quinn ended their visit in our Indigenous Student Resource Centre with a friendly discussion with students and the Centre’s technician Laea Morris and manager Roxanne Dupuis.
