Bachelor of Science University Transfer student, Reid Boulet knew he wanted to start his post-secondary education at Grande Prairie Regional College for a number of reasons; one, close to home, two, small class-sizes but most importantly he wanted to be part of a dream his grandfather helped start five decades ago.

Boulet is the grandson of retired charter instructor Paul Lemay.

“I started at the college teaching biology in 1966,” says Lemay. “It was the first year we had a biology program, and I was the only one who had a designated lab and office in the old high school building which where court house is now.”

Biology lab, J126 on the Grande Prairie campus is named after Lemay for his leadership in the institution and dedication to student learning through his thirty-one years of service at GPRC.
