March-ing on


After six years as the Atlantic representative of the Canadian Council for Geographic Education (CCGE), Peggy March has reached the end of her term, but not the end of her love for geography.

March’s involvement with the CCGE began in 1995, after a geography course at Queen’s University, in Kingston, Ont., triggered her to become proactive about geographic education.

That same year, she became a Fellow of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS). Aside from her work with the CCGE and the RCGS, March has earned a Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence and a National Council for Geographic Education award.

Her work as a geographer and as the department head of social studies and an instructor at Memorial University in Newfoundland is evidence of her commitment to expanding education, both geographic and otherwise.

March hopes to continue her work with the CCGE, incorporating her skills to be of service.

The RCGS and the CCGE wish her all the best in her future endeavours and thank her for her hard work over the years.
