Three members of the GEO Centre board of directors with connections to Memorial University received national awards this spring.
Alice Collins of the Faculty of Education and GEO chairperson, received the Distinguished Service Award from the Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE) in Montreal on May 31.
Two other GEO members also received recent national accolades.
Ed Roberts, former lieutenant governor of Newfoundland and Labrador, was awarded the Order of Canada this April. Roberts received an honorary doctor of laws from Memorial in May 2003 and served as chair of the Board of Regents from 1997 to 2002.
Paul Johnson, GEO Centre founder/owner and honorary doctor of laws recipient (1994), received a Canadian Museum Association Award of Outstanding Achievement, in recognition of his museum projects and his contributions to the Canadian heritage sector.
In August 2007 a new GEO board of directors was formed to include six members from Memorial and five members from the Johnson Family Foundation. Their mission was to further expand the centre's unique, hands-on and tactile museum experience.
The GEO Centre is located on Signal Hill Road in St. John's.
