The professor emeritus received Canada’s highest honour at an Ottawa investiture ceremony on April 7. The April 30 reception is sponsored by the Department of Political Science and the Hamilton Regional Group of the Institute of Public Administration of Canada.

The reception will be 4 to 6 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

Kernaghan, a Fenwick resident, received the order “for his contributions to public administration as one of Canada’s foremost scholars in the areas of ethics and accountability for more than 30 years,” the Governor General’s office said in a news release.

He has been involved with Brock’s Department of Political Science since 1968. He was also the founding director of the Faculty of Business. He retired at the end of 2008.

    As soon as I saw that a Brock person had received the Order of Canada, I immediately knew who it was. Professor Kernaghan was one of the most engaging and brilliant professors. I thoroughly enjoyed his classes and learned so much from him.
    My sincerest congratulations to him.
