Bill Goetz

Bill Goetz, a retired business executive,  established the Stella Margaret Callfas Bursary by means of an endowment which will grow through a bequest made in his will.

I wished to honour the memory of my dear mother, who passed away at the much-too-young age of 37. I felt it only fitting to establish a bursary in her name, and having been born and raised in Kitchener-Waterloo, where better to establish it than at the pre-eminent educational institution, the University of Waterloo.
