Saundra Patterson Memorial Garden and Bursary

Saundra Patterson

Remembering Saundra Patterson through a donation to the Saundra Patterson Memorial Garden and Horticultural Bursary

As the dedicated partner of our president emeritus Dan Patterson and as a champion for NC in her own right, Saundra will forever have a special place in the hearts and memories of our college community.

To honour Saundra’s memory, in a place of special reflection on our campus, Niagara College is creating the Saundra Patterson Memorial Garden in the courtyard at the Daniel J. Patterson Campus.

Donate to the Saundra Patterson Memorial Garden and Bursary.

For more than 25 years during Dan’s tenure as president, Saundra was a steadfast supporter of our College through a transformative period of growth and evolution of our campuses.

She was at the heart of every major college event – as a supporter, ambassador and the true embodiment of our ‘NC DNA.”

Year after year, Saundra was a fixture of the front row at our convocation ceremonies, cheering on our new classes of graduates.

She greeted countless visitors to our campuses from across Canada and around the world.

Saundra and Dan also graciously welcomed their ‘NC family’ into their home over the years, including many gatherings of international students, and numerous ‘friends of NC’ from Niagara and around the world.

With your support, we will soon be able to gather in a special garden on our campus, to remember Saundra, a very dear friend of our College community.
