I was saddened to hear the news that John Nicholas, one of our original academic staff, was killed on Friday 27 April in an accident on his farm. I am advised the funeral will take place tomorrow (Tuesday 8 May) at 11am at the Gold Greek Chapel in Nichols.
John was first employed by UC in December 1971 and retired in June 2000 as an Associate Professor with the Faculty of Education. His area of expertise was Science Education and he will be remembered by his colleagues and students as a passionate and dedicated educator.
To those who knew John well, I welcome your comments and tributes. We will gather them together and pass them onto John’s family, from the UC Community.
