2024 U School Thank You cards

It it great to read the positive impact USchool has on the students – in their own words! Here is a small sample:

We are happy to help USchool and we hope one day these students will attend the University of Alberta. Thank you for your kind words and artwork. Have a great summer.

And Thank you to the volunteers for the Friends of the University of Alberta that make this donation possible! (this could be you!)

On our Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/friendsofuofa/) there are few photos from this morning’s USchool Convocation. https://www.instagram.com/p/C7zeVtNPvY3/

2023 U School Donation

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)

2019 U School Donation

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.
