Former PRESIDENT & CEO, HOLLAND COLLEGE 2005 - 2018
We are deeply saddened and mourning the loss of former Holland College President & CEO, Dr. Brian McMillan.
Brian joined Holland College in 1996 and became the College’s fifth president in 2005. He was an exemplary leader during his 13.5 years as President, a passionate champion for students and staff, an enthusiastic supporter of athletics and wellness, and an active volunteer in the community, which he continued into his retirement. He tirelessly led efforts to rejuvenate and expand the College’s campuses province-wide and left an extremely profound mark on our College and our community as a whole. Brian always took the time to stop and talk with students, staff and faculty alike, and took great joy in forging personal relationships with all around him.
Brian’s dedication and commitment not only to our College and our students, but to the greater community as well, has left a momentous impact. His passing is a significant loss to our College community, and he will be missed tremendously.
On behalf of the Holland College Board of Governors, the Holland College Foundation Board of Directors, and the entire College community, we extend our heartfelt condolences to Brian’s wife Jane, their children, Amy, Megan and Matt, and their families.
