Giving Is Good For Your Health
Annual Fundraising Campaign

The newborn was crying more and more loudly in the waiting room while his mother looked increasingly discouraged. It had been a few months since the small family had moved to Churchill in northern Manitoba, and the isolation felt by this young, unilingual Francophone mother was starting to suffocate her. 

The doctor noticed she was consoling her child in French and that she was having trouble speaking in English with the nurse. She introduced herself in French: “Hello. I’m Doctor Keleigh James.” The young mother burst into tears, relieved to finally be able to communicate in her mother tongue.  

Graduate of a Bachelor's in science (2001) of USB, Keleigh James is proud of having continued her post-secondary studies in French. Fifteen years later, French continues to be a part of her life. And it's thanks to USB, and the generosity of the many donors that ensured a prosperous and competitive scholarship and bursaries program, that she has gotten where she is.

Today, Dr. James is also a donor. Like her, please give generously to USB.

« I remember how bursaries were crucial to help me pay for my student fees. I started giving because I wanted to ensure that future students continue to choose USB, like I did 15 years ago. »

-Dr. Keleigh James, 2017-2018 Fundraising Campaign President
