"20 Years PRoud" Public Relations Alumni Appeal in Memory of Maggie McFarlane

This year marks “20 Years PRoud” at NSCC. To celebrate this milestone we would like to invite the NSCC Public Relations alumni to join us in support of a very special cause. 

The Maggie McFarlane Memorial Endowment Fund has been established in memory of Maggie McFarlane and celebrates her life through the Maggie McFarlane Memorial Award.

In September of 2013 Margaret-Ann (Maggie) McFarlane (’14), began the Public Relations program at the NSCC Waterfront Campus. Maggie began the program eager to embark on a career change and resolute in her determination to balance her education and her beloved family at home, with a 3 year old daughter and 1.5 year old son this was no easy task but one that Maggie accomplished as she usually did any task she set her mind to completing. Evidence of her success in this endeavour was attaining the highest academic standing in the class and the many close friendships she developed with classmates.

In the PR program Maggie found a newfound professional passion which sparked an enthusiasm for a career in PR. In May of 2014, as she was in the middle of a work term project, Maggie first fell ill and was sent careening off on a medical odyssey before she was able to truly embark on her newfound career ultimately passing away in September of 2015. This award is intended to honour Maggie’s memory by providing financial assistance to another PR student who has been likewise inspired and made a commitment to the program and Public Relations field.

Our mission is to raise $22,000 to establish the Maggie McFarlane Memorial Endowment Fund that will support Public Relations students for generations to come.

This is an opportunity for all of us to come together to support and celebrate students who will propel Nova Scotia forward through the practice of public relations and communications as proud NSCC alumni, in honour of the late Maggie McFarlane.
