Wondering what's been going on at St. Paul's this past year? It's been half a year since the printed copy of our alumni and friends newsletter went out, so we thought we'd put together an online round-up of some of the news and events that have taken place since then.
At a well-attended Social Innovaton Showcase yesterday, four St. Paul's GreenHouse students received funding from a new $5,000 Social Innovation Fund for their startup projects. These projects ranged from a Pan-Canadian university program, to a "RockStar" cafe that will see keen minds gathering together to make a difference.
St. Paul’s GreenHouse will be awarding $5,000 in social startup funding this Wednesday, December 3, from 4-5:30 pm in Alumni Hall. The event is called Social Innovation Showcase, and will feature presentations by the finalists.
In memory of Alexandra Josephine Foto: 1995 – 2014
The Alex Foto Memorial Fund will support a student that cares deeply about humanitarian and poverty issues, and who is participating in the International Development Program’s fourth-year field placement in a developing country.
Additional funds raised will assist with the purchase of a memorial bench and tree, along with a plaque for Alex, on campus as a tribute to her passion to learn.
