Celebrating Malcolm McLean

Written by 

Malcolm-Interview-013

CTI is sad to announce that Malcolm McLean, our beloved Executive Director from 1991-1995 and long-time friend, passed away on November 19th, 2014. Malcolm brought his wealth of experience to CTI, mentoring those around him and serving as an ambassador to the organization for the last twenty years. He will be greatly missed by the team.

Malcolm was instrumental in revitalizing CTI’s water treatment program in Nicaragua, after bringing together the program team and securing funding in 2010. Today, more than 275,000 people in Nicaragua have gained safe water as a result of Malcolm’s dedication.

In honor of Malcolm and his wife of 58 years, Wendy, CTI and Northland College have launched an internship for students to work with CTI’s technical experts in the workshop, and to travel internationally to see how basic food and water tools are making a difference in peoples’ lives where we work.

A memorial service will be held for Malcolm on December 6th at 11am at the Macalester Plymouth Church, 1658 Lincoln Avenue, St. Paul, MN. Click here to read Malcolm’s obituary.
