January 2016 not only brought hope for a better future for our residents, but it also was a perfect time to welcome our new Director of Operations to the community.

Bill Pavich joined us at the beginning of the new year, and has in a few short weeks already become familiar with our history, culture, community members and programs, and has set his sights on many of the opportunities that lay ahead. Bill comes to Baldy Hughes with a wide scope of professional experiences and qualifications. He has a Bachelor of Social Work (with distinction) from the Okanagan University College and has enjoyed a 25-year career with the Correctional Service of Canada, most recently as the Parole Officer Supervisor for the Prince George unit.

Bill is passionate about his work, and has lost no time in getting busy on the ground here, working with residents on improving our gym facilities, engaging on community issues, and leading various groups and committees. We are so very grateful to have Bill join us, and to have a community leader of such outstanding caliber help us as we enter an exciting new phase in our evolution. Welcome Bill!
