Manager of Brooks Campus announces retirement

March 8, 2016
Reg Radke, manager of regional stewardship at the Medicine Hat College – Brooks Campus, has officially announced his retirement.                   

With bachelor degrees in science and education from the University of Calgary and the University of Alberta respectively, Radke has spent the majority of his career working in post-secondary, including roles at Olds College, NorQuest College, and SAIT.

Starting as the manager of Brooks Campus in August of 2004, Radke became deeply engaged in the community through involvement with numerous regional organizations including the Brooks Rotary Club, City of Brooks Economic Development and Tourism Committee, Brooks and District Chamber of Commerce, and the Newell Regional Expo Society. He later became the manager of regional stewardship, focusing on improving access to post-secondary resources in rural communities, and ensuring program and service alignment to regional need.

“Brooks Campus has been a great place to come to work every day, and I have worked with a lot of fantastic people at Medicine Hat College,” says Radke. “It’s also been great to get to know and work with many of the other communities in southeastern Alberta. I’ve met some amazing people in our rural communities – people that are creative and resourceful in developing ideas to improve access and support to rural learners.”

Radke’s last day will be August 3, 2016, exactly 12 years after his official start date.

“We wish Reg the very best in his retirement and thank him for his dedication and service to our institution and to the region,” says David Petis, vice president advancement and community relations. “It will be difficult to find a replacement that cares as much about both the community of Brooks and the entire region.”

A search for Radke’s position will be underway shortly.
