Outgoing St. Matthew’s House Chair, Glenna E. Swing and incoming Chair, Michael A. Rehill.
After three years Glenna Swing has completed her term as St. Matthew’s House Board Chair.
In the past three years Swing has worked tirelessly to ensure that SMH is the voice of the less fortunate in our community.
“I am always amazed at the generous hearts in our city. The need is so big, so real,” says Swing.
Swing will continue to support SMH as the Past Chair under the direction of the new Board Chair, Michael Rehill.
Rehill is a retired Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board principal, as well as a retired Major in the Canadian Armed Forces. Rehill served for 40 years and was the Deputy Commanding Officer of the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry when he retired earlier this year.
Rehill joined SMH in 2012 but he is no stranger to poverty in Hamilton. He spent much of his career working with students in inner-city schools. During that time he was selected to Co-Chair the Hamilton Board of Education’s Anti-Poverty steering committee. He was also involved in the Aboriginal Stay-in-School Initiative and Vice-Chair of the Hamilton Aboriginal Education Committee.
“I am honoured and excited to be elected Chair of SMH. Our organization has been helping people and providing hope for over 50 years in downtown Hamilton. Our vision is a community of caring and collaboration,” says Rehill.
Rehill continues to be a pillar in our community serving as Chair of the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires (Hamilton), Past Chair of Alternatives for Youth Hamilton and Past Chair of the St. John Ambulance Hamilton.
