“I am very honoured to take on the role of Chair. Albert College and the Belleville community have been such an important part of our lives over these past few years, and I am very excited to have the opportunity to continue to serve our community in this capacity. The Albert College Board of Governors is a talented and engaged group of individuals who are well positioned to continue the excellent work of the past while setting our sights on a vision for the future.”

Cameron joined the Board of Governors at Albert College in 2015 while her three children, Aidan ’17, Emily ’19 and Ross ’21, were students attending the school. They have since graduated from the College and are all studying at Western University in the Ivey Business, Social Science and Computer Science programs respectively, leaving Elizabeth and her husband, Scott as empty nesters.
