Dr. Douglas Brown has a Ph.D. from Western University, where he specialized in the history of sport and the history of the modern Olympics. Dr. Brown has worked in the post-secondary sector as a professor for more than 20 years and is currently Dean of Kinesiology and Recreation Management at University of Manitoba.
His daughter, Elizabeth, is in Grade 9. Her outstanding Kindergarten experience strengthened his commitment to Balmoral Hall School, motivating him to join our Board of Governors in 2018.
“My experiences, first as a parent and now as a governor, have provided me with new insight into the important role that school administrators play in the overall educational experience of students and teachers,” says Dr. Brown. “Great education is not just about a great classroom experience. It’s about a great learning community.”
