Celebrating Lola’s 46 years of service in Cont. Ed.


We are very happy to announce that our wonderful colleague Margaret Ronald, who we all know and love as Lola, is retiring on July 5, 2024, after an incredible 46 years of service to our College. Lola has been an integral part of our Dawson family, and all her years were spent in the Continuing Education and Community Services (CECS) sector. Her contributions have left an incredible mark on the lives of countless faculty, students, and staff.

Lola has been an absolute star at Dawson. As well, she’s been an amazing administrative officer of Continuing Education Pre-University Studies, guiding our faculty and students with her wisdom and experience. She’s also been a driving force in shaping the academic landscape of our College.

As we celebrate Lola’s remarkable career achievements, we extend our deepest gratitude for her decades of service and leadership. Her dedication continues to inspire us, and her impact will be felt for generations to come.

We wish Lola all the best in her retirement!
