To help future female Huskie athletes, Dr. Pezer has donated the future proceeds of a life insurance policy to establish scholarship support. She calls her planned gift a recognition of her emotional connection with the university, students and sport, which all played a huge role in her life.
After six years as Chancellor, Dr. Pezer is now preparing to step down from her role. However, she is pleased to continue serving as the Patron Member for the Greystone Circle, helping to honour those who remember the university in their estate plans.
"I had the good fortune to be a student here, and to spend a good part of my challenging and rewarding career helping students getting their degrees. Now I've had the good fortune, as Chancellor, to confer their degrees," she smiles. "So I've come full circle."
