ACAC Hall of Fame Inductee: Garry Meadus

ACAC Hall of Fame Inductee:  Garry Meadus

Perhaps no one has a more significant influence of the development of the NAIT Athletics Program than its founder Garry Meadus.

In 1963 when NAIT first opened its doors, Student Services was a one man operation and that one man was Gary Meadus. At NAIT, Garry was afforded the unique opportunity to mould a Student Service division that embodied his humanistic philosophy and those qualities remain fundamental to this day.

In 1964, Garry Meadus played an instrumental role in the formation of the Western Inter-College Conference and would serve as Chairman and Treasurer until 1969 when it was renamed the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference. Garry served as the first president of the ACAC and his leadership and guidance were a steadying influence to the organization. He represented NAIT on council until the early 1990's holding a variety of roles. Garry retired as the Vice President of Student and Staff Services, and CEO of the NAIT Foundation in the fall of 1991, then served as ACAC commissioner from 1994-2001 and would later serve as Golf commissioner from 2002 to 2005.

Congratulations Garry Meadus on your induction into the ACAC Wall of Fame.
