A second chance

“Part of why SAIT is so important to me is because it saved my life ... I spent 17 years of my life involved with crime and violence and various problems with the police.

I came to SAIT in 1973 and negotiated my in way as a student ― the associate dean gave me a chance, even though I only had grade 11. The key was the assistant dean and the instructors really were an inspiration for me. They recognized something in me that nobody had ever seen ― they recognized potential and possibility. And with my willingness to explore that, they were willing to help me out and guide me. I graduated with honours.

Then later, I became an instructor, and then an ordained minister. And now I am onto my next career, which is Santa Claus ― I turned pro last year."
