St. Clair College President Patti France has announced she will not be renewing her contract when it expires in August 2024 and will retire.

France will have worked at the College for over 35 years, including two terms as the President when her term is concluded.

She prepared a personal video for staff to let them know directly from her of her decision. College staff received the video by email after she informed the Board of Directors Tuesday evening at their meeting.

“In its President, St. Clair deserves a degree of single-minded supervision – and, during a crisis, it demands a level of obsessive commitment. I hope I’ve provided that degree of dedication to the institution and to you during my tenure,” France said in her video message.

“Working with you, and leading you, has been the greatest honour of my life.”

The Board of Governors will begin the process this fall to recruit a new College President.
