Remembering former RJAA president Don McCurdy

What stood out most about Don was his generosity: with his time, stories, advice and drinks!

As a member of the Ryerson Journalism Alumni Association, he was constantly giving back. Not only did he serve as the president, but he also took on the “past president” advisory role for three years – a position that only called for a one-year term. Going above and beyond to help others is what Don did best. On the association, he took interest in the career paths of each individual executive member and provided guidance for the group as a whole and to each member individually. You couldn’t help but love Don.

Don was my sounding board and a talented, passionate and fun-loving guy. I will miss him dearly.

(RJAA President 2013-2016)
