Saundra Patterson, who passed away in January, was at the heart of every major college event during Dan Patterson’s more than 25-year tenure as Niagara College president. As a supporter, ambassador and the true embodiment of our NC DNA, Saundra leaves a special legacy at NC, and will be truly missed by students, faculty and staff.
To honour Saundra’s memory, her love of gardening and fondness for NC’s School of Horticulture, the faculty and students in our School of Horticulture are designing and will be creating the Saundra Patterson Memorial Garden in the courtyard at the Daniel J. Patterson Campus in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The garden will be personalized to include a variety of Saundra’s favourite plants and is expected to be completed this fall.
To make your gift to support the creation of the garden honouring and preserving Saundra’s legacy at NC, select Saundra Patterson Memorial Garden and Bursary under Areas of Support on page 2 of the online donation form. If you prefer a different method for donating, please contact Joanne in NC’s Development and Alumni Relations team at 905-328-5528.
With your support, the Saundra Patterson Memorial Garden will blossom into a beautiful place of reflection on campus for everyone to enjoy, while paying tribute to Saundra’s life and connection to NC.
Any funds remaining after completion of the garden will support the Saundra Patterson Horticultural Bursary for NC students.
