Who Was O.S. Geiger?
O.S. Geiger School was named in honour of Alberta educator O.S. (Pelk) Geiger (1906-1987). Mr. Geiger served as teacher, principal, supervisor, and superintendent of elementary schools within the Calgary Board of Education for 42 years. He had the rare ability of gathering around him enlightened educators in whom he placed trust and confidence, which created a climate of excitement and growth in the sixties and seventies.
His constant question, "Is it good for kids?" served as an excellent guide in an exciting period of education. Many fine programs that exist in our schools today can be linked directly to the time of Mr. Geiger's leadership. His influence impacted the lives of thousands of students in Calgary, and his mark on education continues through others who have the same dedication and commitment to the educational growth of young people.
