The Undergraduate Spring Awards Reception in The Parrott Centre at Loyalist College on Wednesday, March 9th was a happy occasion for donors, students, faculty, staff and guests of the College as 50 students were presented with awards that totaled $38,650.
In her opening remarks, College President Maureen Piercy congratulated the award recipients and expressed appreciation for the work of the Foundation in providing support to students. Many of the awards made available to students throughout the year are provided by the endowment fund for student financial assistance, which is administered by the Loyalist College Foundation.
Donna Gowthorpe, Chair of the Foundation’s Grants Committee, welcomed everyone on behalf of the Foundation and the Grants Committee of the Board. “We know that financial assistance makes a difference for many of you as you continue with your post-secondary education – and that’s why we’re involved. Thank you to our many donors for your generosity – and our warmest congratulations to all award recipients.”
Donors were recognized and thanked by Stuart Wright, Chair, Loyalist College Board of Governors, who commented on the “incredible generosity of people who have stepped forward with contributions.” He explained that, through forward thinking and planning, donors are not only helping students of today—endowment funds continue to provide financial assistance to Loyalist students on an annual basis.
