Innis Alumni & Friends

2013 Arbor Awards

Innis College is proud to recognize the incredible dedication of alumni and friends whose contributions are making a significant impact on the College and our students. Thanks to the support of committed volunteers, Innis remains a dynamic, vibrant community made  up of students, alumni, friends, faculty, and staff.

On September 9th, the College celebrated Ian Shaw, Dan McClellan, Don McMurray,  and Charlotte Mickie as they received an Arbor Award, the University’s most prestigious volunteer-recognition award. The entire Innis family is grateful for their immeasurable loyalty, dedication, and generosity.

Sara Shapero, one of the founding members of Later Life Learning,  was also honoured posthomously. Along with her late husband, Sara initiated the Later Life Learning Scholarship in 1983, which currently holds an endowment of over $1.2 million and will support over 40 annual undergraduate scholarships in perpetuity. Her  enduring impact on the College and our students is truly admirable. Sara’s son, Jose Shapero attended the ceremony to graciously accept  the award on his mother’s behalf.
