LCS Summer Academy & Programs: Credits, Camp, and Community

Summer Academy and Programs 2021: A New Season to Enjoy LCS Those of us lucky enough to work or live on the Lakefield campus during the summer months know what a treasure The Grove is during July and August. Early morning paddles, quick dips in the lake at lunch, long walks at Northcote Campus at dusk, campfires at the waterfront: it is outdoors every day at its most pleasurable. We have had an online academy for many years, serving the needs of our students who wish to stay academically active during the summer.

Terry Ross '92 is the Director, Strategic Centre Initiatives at the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary. In his role, Ross '92 oversees the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation and the Centre for Corporate Sustainability. We spoke with Terry about his life after LCS, his work driving innovation and sustainability in Calgary and the value of entrepreneurial thinking. Tell us about your life after graduating from LCS? After graduation in '92, I attended Bishop’s University and studied psychology and philosophy. It was interesting enough, but I didn’t have a particular mission or vision about where my life was headed career-wise. Following that, I moved out to Alberta and started working in a variety of sales jobs, which were fantastic because they were tough.
