In the news release about Henry Paetkau stepping down as president of Conrad Grebel University College, Waterloo, Ont. May 17, page 22), there is no indication of a "forced resignation," as the headline may have suggested to some. Board chair Bert Lobe notes that "these seven years have been very good years for the college. Henry has overseen a period of remarkable stability and growth. His gracious spirit, attention to detail, along with his constant readiness to put others first, have helped endear him to many." Paetkau's decision to step down after a second term was entirely his own, says Lobe.
