Supporting the Friend’s primary goal to connect the community to the University, we are proud to donate $10,000 to U School. On May 8, 2019, Friends President Kate Freeman, with Allen Snart and Ken Regan, presented the big cheque to Derek Roy Brenneis (Director University of Alberta Senate) and Melania Woloszyn (USchool Program Lead).
On June 4, 2019, a few of the Friends attended the USchool convocation. The children were very excited and hopefully some of them will be future University of Alberta students (and Friends!). One of the early USchool attendees is in his third year and he spoke to the children of the opportunities in front of them.
And everybody’s favorite bears GUBA and Patches (just out of the photo – sorry)!
