Gregory Swanson, in his first term of service, is the current Secretary and has served on the Board of Regents since 2016. Currently, Greg is an “of Counsel” lawyer with McKercher LLP Law Firm, where he was a partner up until December 2015 when he semi-retired. He continues to work part-time in his legal areas of expertise including Taxation, Corporate Law, and Wills and Estates.
As a University of Regina (U of R) student from 1971 to 1974, Greg has fond memories of Luther, specifically the Cafeteria where he often ate lunch since, as he says, “[it] had the best food on campus.” After convocating from the U of R, his connection to Luther continued through his involvement as president of the U of R Alumni Association and a member of the U of R Senate and Board of Governors, where indirectly he became acquainted with Dr. Bruce Perlson and current Luther President, Dr. Bryan Hillis.
He is particularly excited about working with Luther College: “The future of our society (including my granddaughters) is dependent upon our future leaders being well-educated. And it is institutions like Luther College Regina that provide the great education to those future leaders.”
Greg also serves as the board chair of the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation; President of the Scandinavian Club of Regina; and is a member of the Law Reform Commission of Saskatchewan. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, backpacking, bicycling, sailing, and downhill and cross country skiing.
