    Great to see this new exhibit re Chester Ronning at our local Museum! Very fitting! My first exposure to Chester Ronning was at the Opening Exercises of the 1971/72 school year as a new Grade 12 CLC instructor. Intrigued by his life and careers, I quite enjoyed Chester’s warm greetings in Mandarin to the Chinese students present followed by his challenge to all new students and faculty to welcome the big range in opportunities in the new school year and what awaited each of us upon completing the year. He knew of what he spoke as each of us came to learn as the year unfolded.
