Royal Roads marks 75th anniversary
The Times Colonist spoke with President and Vice-Chancellor Allan Cahoon and Dave Bindernagel, the last commandant of Royal Roads Military College, about the upcoming Sunset Ceremony and the 75th celebrations.
An excerpt from the article:
(Bindernagel) finished his officer’s education with a bachelor’s degree in politics and economics before spending his working life in the navy. Bindernagel gives full credit to the team-building and leadership training he received at Royal Roads, along with his academic courses.
“It’s the knowledge that you can handle things no matter what,” he said. “It’s just a matter of making sure you maintain conviction and focus and can rely on others.”
Allan Cahoon, president and vice-chancellor of Royal Roads University, said the same approach continues today.
“We are what we have come from,” said Cahoon. “I am very much a firm believer in that.
“Our focus that we had as a military college was to prepare leaders and people for leading change,” said Cahoon. “Both of which I would say we are doing today."
