BCSTA would like to pay tribute to past Executive Director, Henry Armstrong, who passed away at Peace Arch hospital on Thursday, February 11th. Henry served as BCSTA’s Executive Director from 1972-1988, and was very influential provincially, both with boards of education and with government. He had a positive impact on public education, and because of all of his hard work and passion for education, his legacy will live on.
“The stories about Henry Armstrong formed a significant part of the culture of the BCSTA. No long term staff member spoke of the organization, its values, and culture without relating at least one Armstrong story. His values, beliefs, and administrative style have deeply influenced the organization and its history.
