School of the Arts Gets New Chair

Daryl Jolly Takes Over Role from Jason Taylor


Changes at the top for Selkirk College's School of Arts as veteran instructor Daryl Jolly moves into position previously held by Jason Taylor. Below is the official announcement by Kate Pelletier.

I am pleased to announce that Daryl Jolly is the new Chair for the School of the Arts. 

Daryl is an instructor in the Digital Arts & New Media Program (DANM) and has been with Selkirk College for 17 years. Daryl is an artist with a passion for teaching and the arts; his medium is film. Besides teaching in the DANM program Daryl also taught in and coordinated our film program that ran from 2005 to 2009. I am really looking forward to working with Daryl in his new role. 

I want to take this opportunity to thank Jason Taylor for his leadership, dedication and support over the last several years—for the programs in the School of the Arts and at the College in general. Jason is stepping away from the chair's role for the next year to focus on applied research and to assist us as we look at new program development in digital fabrication and IT—the geeky stuff he loves so much! Jason will also be teaching in DANM so those of you on the Tenth Street Campus will still see him around!
