Mary Haydon Memorial Scholarship

INTRODUCTION

The fund was established by family and friends in memory of Mary Haydon who passed away suddenly on September 16, 2003, leaving her husband Andy and her four children: Andrew, Kelly, Tracy and Terry. Mrs. Haydon was multi-talented as a teacher, volunteer, interior decorator and hotelier. She was awarded a Bachelor of Commerce degree in 1958 at the University of Ottawa and she was the first recipient of the Student Award of Merit. Additionally, she was the first female student in the Commerce program as well as the editor of the University newspaper The Fulcrum. In 1989, she was the first woman to receive the Administration Club?s first Trudeau Medal in recognition of her achievement in leadership, business innovation and contribution to the University of Ottawa. The founders of this fund appreciate the matching contribution of the Government of Ontario through its Ontario Student Opportunity Trust Fund program.
