FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – After seven years of service, Northern Lights College President and CEO Dr. Bryn Kulmatycki has announced his retirement.

NLC says Kulmatycki recently stepped away from his duties to focus on some immediate health issues, but after some reflection and discussions with his family, he decided it was time to retire.

“For almost seven years, Bryn has exemplified NLC’s values in his position as college president—the culmination of a distinguished career in educational administration. Under his leadership, NLC has grown in terms of size and reputation,” the college said on their website.

“All will agree that Bryn has more than earned this transition into retirement, and together we wish him a very happy and healthy retirement,” NLC said.

The college’s board of governors has appointed Todd Bondaroff as acting president during Bryn’s medical leave.
