Stephen Webster, a long-time and cherished volunteer for the Association of Alumni of Sir George Williams University, moved to Montreal in 1957 from his native Granby, Que.
In 1960, he began studying chemistry at Sir George Williams University. After spending nine years working by day while taking courses at night, he graduated in 1969. Steve went on to enjoy a long career in research and development with Montreal-based Imperial Tobacco before retiring in 1996.
In 1992, Steve returned to Concordia as a member of the Association of Alumni of Sir George Williams University’s Board of Directors. He successfully led the Association as president from 1997 to 1999. He remains an active participant on the Board and has served on many committees, most notably the Fund Raising Committee, which runs the annual Bowl-a-thon that brings together students and alumni for a fundraiser that has amassed more than $100,000 toward scholarships and bursaries.
Steve plans to lend his comprehensive knowledge of Sir George Williams, as well as his experience and passion, to planning a celebration of the Association’s 75th anniversary in 2012.
He has also volunteered extensively with Scouts Canada, serving as district president and assistant provincial commissioner, as well with Meals on Wheels and as a baseball coach.
