Dr Dorothy Eagleson
Posted: 9 August 2010
It is with sadness that NAEGA announces the death of Dr Dorothy Eagleson who was the first President of NAEGA.
Dorothy held the presidency for 16 years from 1982 until 1998. Her wisdom was an important to the development of NAEGA during those years. In Belfast in 1967 Dorothy established EGSA (Educational Guidance Service for Adults) and led the organisation until her retirement in 1989.
'As a result of her work, thousands of adults in Northern Ireland had the opportunity to return to education and transform their lives' (EGSA August 2010).
A fuller appreciation of Dorothy Eagleson and her work will appear later.
