Success Through Giving


On March 23, Lakehead University hosted a luncheon that brought together students who have received bursaries or awards and the donors who have supported them.

Students had the opportunity to thank the donors who have assisted them and share how these contributions have impacted their education and university experience. For many students, these bursaries and awards have made their education dreams a reality.

The luncheon was hosted by Deb Comuzzi, Lakehead Vice-President, External Relations with remarks from David Tamblyn, Chair of the Lakehead University Board of Governors, and Dr. Michel Beaulieu, President of the Alumni Association of Lakehead University.

One of the highlights of the event was the launch of a special Success Through Giving video featuring student recipients of donor-funded awards:

Thank you to Patricia Vo, Ryan Venn, Jocelyn Bel, Sarah Dyce, Julia Ieropoli, Katherine Beaulieu, and Josh Levac, Manager, Student Awards and Financial Aid for participating in the video.

Success Through Giving was a wonderful opportunity to gather as a Lakehead community and celebrate the generosity of our donors and the successes of the student that they have supported. Giving at every level counts, no matter the size of the contribution.
