One to the main goals of The Friends is to connect the community to the University of Alberta. U School is a program that contributes to the connection. The Friends are proud to continue their support of U School with this cheque for $10,000.
On April 26, 2023, Friends President Ken Regan, with Allen Snart (on left), presented the big cheque to Chancellor Peggy Garrity, Michaela Mann (USchool Program Lead) and Tyrel Brochu (Exec Officer to the Chancellor, University of Alberta – Senate) If you would like more information about U School, check it out here: https://www.ualberta.ca/chancellor-and-senate/u-school/index.html
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)!
