Jim Greene Comes to Selkirk

Selkirk College instructor Jim Greene is settling into his new office on the Tenth Street Campus and excited to be helping foster a new generation of tourism leaders.

“It’s an entirely new career for me,” says the 57-year-old. “It’s scary, but that’s what life is all about. If I can pass on what I have learned in tourism over the years, I’m happy to do it.”

This semester, Greene will teach Business Finance, Accounting, Hospitality Law and Mixology to students in the Ski Resort Operations & Management Program (SROAM), the Resort & Hotel Management Program (RHOT) and the Post-Graduate Diploma in Hospitality Management.
