Memorable Manitobans: John William “Jack” Carroll (1926-2018)

Educator.

Born at Treherne on 18 December 1926, he was raised at Bagot and was educated at MacGregor School, Stockton School, and Portage la Prairie. He worked in a lumber mill in British Columbia, a fur trade post in northern Canada, the Transcona Cordite Plant, and in a mine in northern Manitoba. After a period of permit teaching in northern Manitoba, he attended the Central Normal School (1950-1951) then taught for six years at Minitonas School (?-?), Flin Flon (?-?), and Emerson School (?-?). After a year working in oil fields, he returned to teaching with the Winnipeg School Division for 33 years. He taught at Robert H. Smith School (1957-1958), Lord Selkirk School (1958-1959), Somerset School (1960-1966), and General Wolfe School (1966-1968) before spending a year in exchange at Thetford Mines, Quebec. He was a member of the Winnipeg Teachers Association (President, 1974-1975) and chaired its committee that established a long-term disability program for teachers. He served as Vice-Principal of Wellington School (?-?) and Earl Grey School (1972-1973) and Principal of Champlain School (1973-?), Isaac Newton School (?-?), and Churchill High School (1980-1990). He retired in 1990. He died at Winnipeg on 17 April 2018.
