Roy E. White

Educator.

He was the Principal of Cameron School (1951-1953), Warren School (1954-1958), and Hartney School (1958-1968). He was Superintendent of the Midland School Division from 1968 to 1973, stepping down to work for the Manitoba Association of School Trustees until the late 1980s. In May 1991, he chaired a four-person commission that examined bringing the Manitoba Public Schools Act in line with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
