Motivated by his own experiences at Brock University, Art Bicknell (BSc ’71) has created a legacy that he hopes will inspire others.
As a student, Bicknell remembers a much different University than stands today. He appreciates that the continued growth around campus and the evolving learning and research wouldn’t take place without donor support.
He was able to receive scholarships for each of his years at Brock and the impact was memorable to him, beyond his education and throughout his career.
“I would not have had a successful career if I did not receive scholarships during my time at Brock University,” said Bicknell.
“It seemed only fitting that I give to Brock so future generations will have the same opportunities.”
As a result of Bicknell’s annual support, there are now two scholarships that bear his name.
Knowing that he wanted to ensure the awards continue to build and grow along with the institution, Bicknell made a further decision — to leave a gift directed to them in his will.
This gift will ensure the scholarships continue to make the greatest impact possible and enable students to obtain a post-secondary education, and further research in the field of mathematics.
Bicknell has truly created a legacy at Brock, in both name and impact.
His family name will live on and his generosity inspires past, current and future award recipients.
