George attended Stanley Jones Elementary School, Colonel Macleod Junior High School and Crescent Heights High School. These schools provided him with a high quality, well-rounded education, giving him the opportunity to study further at the University of Calgary.
Being a part of a community and giving back through volunteering was a foundational part of George's upbringing. George had the honour of participating in various events and initiatives with his father, who was a community advocate, and someone who valued seva as his top priority. Those experiences stuck with George and later led George to get into public service, so he could continue giving back.
