Artist Statement
Some people are born teachers; they love to share and to nurture. Mount Royal has been blessed with many such brilliant teachers, including Dr. Leona Paterson, Director of Speech Arts (1944-1977), Director of the Conservatory (1973-1977). Dr. Paterson single-handedly built the speech and drama department at Mount Royal Conservatory. Without her pioneering spirit, Mount Royal would not now have the largest speech arts program of its kind in the country.
