Following a distinguished 32 year career at SCUPE, Rev. Carol Ann McGibbon, Executive Vice President, Academic Dean and the director of the GTUS program, ends her employment at SCUPE at the end of August 2013. As the spouse of SCUPE’s founding president, Dr. David Frenchak, she was part of a dynamic executive team that brought SCUPE to its current strength. This move completes the two year-long leadership transition occasioned by the retirement of Dr. Frenchak in June 2010 and the beginning of Dr. Shanta Premawardhana’s tenure as President of SCUPE in November, 2010.
