2019 Friends’ Annual General Meeting

Over 70 Friends gathered at this year’s AGM. The mix and mingle style was a great opportunity to meet new friends and catch up with old friends.

A short Friends’ Annual General Meeting was conducted, with Luca presenting a year end review and Nazir presenting the Treasurer’s report.

Chancellor Doug Stollery thanked the Friends for the USchool donation and highlighted the profound impact USchool has on the students.

Thanks to our guest speaker Dr. Lee Foote, for introducing us to new Aga Khan Garden part of the University of Alberta Botanical Gardens.
