This summer saw the retirement of Vidar Jensen (Head of Maintenance) from UWC Red Cross Nordic. Vidar has worked at Haugland for the past 30 years, from the times before the College and the Rehabilitation Centre were opened – and, more recently, he has served the College for 22 years since it was opened back in 1995.
He has made an extraordinary contribution to the development of this place. In his retirement, he has taken on the role of project manager for the construction of the new Baking House on our campus.
On the afternoon of Thursday 21st September 2017, Vidar introduced Her Majesty Queen Sonja, the patron of the College, to the Baking House project. At the opening of the cultural show – and in the presence of Her Majesty – he was presented with the thirty years long service medal by the mayor of Fjaler, Gunhild Berge Stang.
