St. Paul's kicks off 50th anniversary celebrations!

Friday, March 15, 2013

We kicked off our 50th Anniversary celebrations on Thursday, March 14  with a reception to honour alumni and friends who contributed to the renovation of one of the most important student and community spaces on the St. Paul’s campus –- MacKirdy Hall.

To mark the critically important role that St. Paul’s alumni have played in the past few years, the hall -- named for Kenneth MacKirdy, founding Waterloo history department professor, member of St. Paul's board of governors and Honorary Fellow of St. Paul's -- was officially renamed Alumni Hall.

As part of the renovations, The Edward Jackman Reading Room was created for students. Reverend Jackman has been a longtime supporter of both the university and St. Paul's through the Jackman Foundation, and contributed to the former St. Paul's library, supporting the construction of a reading room during renovations in the area that at one time held the book stacks.

The celebrations on the 14th included the unveiling of the new Dr. Kenneth A. MacKirdy History Wall that captures the spirit of the past 50 years.

50th anniversary celebrations will include a spring BBQ, a fall Blackforest Coffee House Reunion and a spring 2014 special dinner to honour distinguished alumni of St. Paul’s and Waterloo -- so stay tuned!
