Keeping in touch


Rupee and Corol Pallan were both students at the Faculty of Education when they met in the McPherson Library in the 1960s. They both had pretty rewarding careers in the public-school system as teachers with education degrees were fairly rare at the time. Rupee quickly became school principal and Corol taught elementary school for 23 years. Read the full story in The Torch.
