Vic High and the Alumni Association lost a good friend with the passing of Dunc Lorimer. The last of long-serving principals, he spent a quarter century, almost his whole educational career, at Vic High. He remained a stalwart friend of the school, actively involved in alumni affairs, and will be remembered as embodying the school’s spirit by the thousands of students who knew him.

Jill Wallace – Class of ’66
A celebration of the life of Jill Wallace was held in the Lawrie Wallace Auditorium on March 10, 2011, with more than 600 friends and family in attendance. Jill was a longtime stalwart of the Alumni Board, and a cheerful helper in the VHS Archives for the past several years. We will miss her terribly, as we strive to emulate her thoughtfulness, good humour, attention to detail, and love of Vic High!
