Jack MacKenzie, Honorary Doctor of Laws

On Friday, October 16, the University of Regina bestowed upon Mr. Jack MacKenzie an Honourary Doctor of Laws Degree.  This was in recognition for his outstanding lifetime of service to education and his commitment to Outdoor education.

During his career, Jack earned six university degrees. After beginning his teaching career in Swan River Manitoba, he was appointed physical education consultant for Regina Public Schools in 1956.  Over his 30 year career with RPS, he introduced several innovation to the system’s physical education curriculum, including outdoor education.  Specifically, Mr MacKenzie founded the swimming, canoeing and cross country skiing programs, and was instrumental in ensuring that all schools had a gymnasium on site.  Jack co-founded Saskairie, an outdoor cap and environmental education centre located near Carlyle, at the edge of Moose Mountain Provincial Park.

Through canoe trips in northern Saskatchewan, Jack encouraged children from southern Saskatchewan and Aboriginal children from the North to come together on outdoor expedition.  He also invited Elders and others from White Bear First Nation to come to Saskarie to share their skills and their stories with students.

Mr. MacKenzie has always recognized the joy of effort.  He has commissioned a sculpture bearing that name, and funds a yearly award which recognizes a student who best exhibits the good feeling and satisfaction that comes from doing one’s best.  He also provided seed money for the Random Acts of Kindness fund, which provides opportunists to students at the school to initiate and implement projects to help needy individuals or groups, or environmental causes.

During his career, Jack has provided leadership to a number of local, provincial and national organizations.   He has received several awards for this work in advancing physical and outdoor education, and the Saskatchewan Order of Merit for his commitment to teaching and volunteer service.

 

The staff, students, and all the community associated with the school that bears his name are so very proud of this extraordinary man.
