Executive Profile First Vice-President Folgo DellaVedova   Folgo was born in Rive D’Arcano, northern Italy in 1951 and landed in Halifax with his parents and baby sister in 1956. A resident of Sault Ste. Marie since then, he began his teaching career in 1975 with the Huron-Superior C .D .S .B. at St Mary’s College. He retired as principal of St. Basil Secondary School in 2005. In early retirement Folgo also served as an adjunct professor in the Department of Education at Lake Superior State University. Folgo and his wife Marie were married in 1973 and currently have two children Nathaniel and Jonathan and two lovely grand children Logan and Isla. During his career Folgo served in leadership roles including local executive member of OECTA, local President of the CPCO, President of the local Secondary School OECTA Affiliate and Vice President of the community St. Vincent de Paul Society. He also served as Vice Chair of the local Comedy Guild. Throughout his career and into retirement Folgo was heavily involved in several sports as an athlete and coach and made his mark as an athletics javelin thrower. He has earned medals and held records at the secondary, university, provincial, national and international levels. One of the most significant achievements was exceeding an 80- meter standard that would have qualified him for the 1980 Moscow Olympics that unfortunately was boycotted by Canada and several other countries. In June of this year Folgo was inducted into the Sault Ste Marie Sports Hall of Fame. Further into retirement Folgo continued to accept leadership roles as Chair of the Sault Ste. Marie & Algoma Health Coalition, Director on the Board of Northern Credit Union, President of the Northland Barbershop Chorus and Vice President of the Sault Ste. Marie Fogolar Furlan (Italian) Club. An RTO/ERO member since 2005 he was elected 2nd Vice President in 2017 and in June 2018 Folgo was proudly elected 1st Vice President of District 3 Algoma. It is within this capacity that Folgo was proud and honoured to have participated in the historical Annual Meeting and Senate in Toronto where RTO/ERO transitioned into a new governance model under the Canada Not-for–Profit Corporation Act. This necessitated the first election of a Board of Directors and the chairpersons of all the standing committees. He stated that it was an exciting and memorable experience and voting opportunity launching the organization into a new era and adding greater value to its membership. Folgo continues to be active having an interest and passion in a variety of personal, professional and community endeavours including education, music, athletics, hunting, kayaking, carpentry and the arts. Above all of that is family and grand children of course. Life is good!
