Derek was a beloved Executive Director at STLEO, only the second since the inception of the society in 1967. Derek was key in establishing, among other things, better wages and benefits for our sector. In his honour, our agency has established a fund that will provide Indigenous students with an annual financial award for leadership. We hope that this fund will be a legacy and a remembrance of Derek.
