It might not have been the path he would have chosen for himself when Ed Jernigan came to the city in 1976 to teach math and system design engineering at the University of Waterloo from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

But the sacrifices he made to inspire the best and brightest students from across the country through the SHAD program over the last 30 years have laid the groundwork for the next generation of innovators, and he’s proud of the part he played in touching the lives of more than 3,000 people.
