Biographical history

John Hutton began his career at Grant MacEwan Community College on September 1, 1979 as a full time instructor in the Social Work program. His education included a master's degree in social work (University of Calgary), a degree in theology (St. Stephen's College, University of Alberta), and a doctorate in social work (Columbia University, New York) earned during a leave of absence from 1985-1987. During his time at GMCC, he served on Academic Council, the Faculty Association negotiating committee, and as co-chairman of the Family Institute. He taught outreach courses at Slave Lake, Grouard, High Level, the Blood Indian Reserve near Fort Macleod, and the Mennonite Centre for Newcomers in Edmonton. He also worked with a number of groups, including serving as a board member for the AIDS Network, past-president of the Alberta Association of Social Workers, and with city agencies Operation Friendship and Urban Manor. He died December 24, 1990 at age 46. The John Hutton Memorial Award for Social Work students excelling in the Social Policy course is named in his honour.
