“Throughout this last year, students continued to overcome odds presented by the pandemic. Though some of those odds remain, the support and generosities by donors have offered a light in the darkness. Your contributions have made consequential differences in the lives of graduate students and the greater Brock community. The depth of your generosities do not go unnoticed, unappreciated or unacknowledged – you’ve helped illuminate the paths of our futures.”
