Professor Crewdson’s Legacy

The end of the last summer term saw the retirement of Professor Crewdson as Chair of Ripley’s Governing Body. Professor Crewdson had served Ripley for over 25 years as a governor with the last 15 as Chair.  Professor Crewdson’s legacy will remain strong at Ripley, not least through the ‘John Crewdson Library’ named in his honour but also because Professor Crewdson will remain an influential figure through his involvement as the Chair of the Board of Directors of the Bay Learning Trust. Mrs Jackie Garnett was elected unanimously by her fellow governors to be the new Chair of Ripley’s Governing Body, with Mrs Val Wilson elected as her Vice Chair. Both Mrs Garnett and Mrs Wilson also have strong ties with the Trust as both sit on the Board of Directors.
