JCU Chancellor Lt-Gen (ret.) John Grey (pictured above) was farewelled in Cairns last Wednesday night at a special dinner held in his honour.

About 70 people attended the occasion, including government, business and community leaders.

JCU Vice Chancellor, Professor Sandra Harding spoke about the Chancellor’s many achievements during his time in the role from 1999 to 2016.

The Chancellor responded with an entertaining speech with several anecdotes and memories of his own.

Chancellor-Elect Bill Tweddell and his wife Christine were among those who wished Lt-Gen Grey all the best for the future.

A farewell dinner will be held in Townsville later this month.
