Beedie School of Business students, faculty and staff banded together to pay homage to Ryan Beedie and family, as they showed their appreciation for the $22 million donation the family made to the school in February 2011.
The Ryan Beedie appreciation night allowed the students and faculty the chance to network with Ryan, and demonstrate some of the opportunities made possible by the Beedie family’s generous gift. The evening featured speeches from Daniel Shapiro, Dean of the Beedie School of Business, and a number of students who have directly benefited from the initiatives the Beedie endowment has funded.
The students also presented Ryan with a video made by some of the current Beedie Ambassadors, thanking him for the opportunities his family’s donation has made possible in the subsequent years.
“It was really inspiring and energizing to meet the students and hear all the amazing things they are doing at the school,” said Ryan Beedie. “There is not a day goes by that I am not grateful to have the opportunity for our family name to be affiliated with this amazing school that continues to improve, and I am very touched by the amazing show of appreciation from everyone tonight.” Keep reading…
