The William G. Tamblyn Legacy Society was launched on October 2, 2015, to celebrate the people who are making postsecondary education possible. The Legacy Society recognizes donors leaving a gift in their estate to Lakehead University - and connects them to special events, presentations, and seminars throughout the year.
The country’s third largest legal practice – Norton Rose Fulbright Canada LLP – has donated $125,000 to the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law at Lakehead University to establish a new award.
Lakehead University is naming its new Legacy Society in honour of William G. Tamblyn, the University’s founding President and Vice-Chancellor.
With the same spirit and drive that has made TBT Engineering a leading force in the business sector, Rob and Liana Frenette continue to demonstrate a commitment to Lakehead University through the establishment of a graduate level scholarship in civil engineering.
Don’t let Frances Picherack’s tiny stature fool you. She is a woman of great character and tenacious spirit. Frances also personifies the word LOYAL – a quality that Dictionary.com defines as a commitment to a cause, ideal, custom, institution or product. Her loyalty lies with her family, her community, and Lakehead University.
John B. Laskin and the Toronto law firm Torys LLP, where John is a senior litigation partner, have made a generous donation of $50,000 to the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law capital campaign. This gift is being used to create vibrant learning spaces in the historic PACI building – the home of the law school.
The shouts of enthusiastic students on crisp autumn days cheering for their beloved football team are as fresh in the minds of the PACI Retired Teachers group as if it were yesterday.
Lynda McKeown strongly believes in lifelong learning.
