Fredericton (12 Mar. 2014) — There are many unsung heroes in the history of inclusive education in New Brunswick. They are the people who have worked quietly yet diligently to foster relationships, with the goal of creating a level playing field for students with a disability. Wayne Milner, a counsellor at the New Brunswick Community College’s Moncton Campus, is one such person.
