Derm McNulty Courage to Be Curious Memorial Award Fund
The Derm McNulty Courage to be Curious Award was established in 2012 by Karen Schmieg, friends, family and JIBC staff in memory of Karen’s late husband Derm McNulty, a former JIBC staff member and long-term faculty member with the JIBC Centre for Conflict Resolution. A common-sense guy and electrician by trade, Derm saw education and training in conflict resolution as life-transforming. At 49 years old he began the Certificate in Conflict Resolution, which forever changed his life. He continued to “fix things” and help many students before cancer took his life too suddenly in 2010.
All donations made to the JIBC Foundation in memory of Derm McNulty will be put towards the Derm McNulty Courage to be Curious Memorial Award fund. The purpose of the award is to provide tuition support for Centre for Conflict Resolution students. Applicants could be seeking a career change, returning to education after a long break, or just wishing to reinvent themselves.
It is hoped this award will spur the "courage to be curious," reflecting Derm’s spirit for life.
Please make cheques payable to JIBC Foundation. Thank you.
