UWindsor alumnus leaves legacy donation to School of Dramatic Art

Students pursuing a degree in Dramatic Art will be supported in their education because of memorial donations to honour the life of alumnus Mary Schisler (BA ’88), who died May 9.

While President of the OPUS Board of Directors, Ms. Schisler supported the arts and humanities by establishing the Alumni Evening with University Players. Her legacy donations will go toward providing visiting guest artists and guest directors in the School of Dramatic Art.

Ms. Schisler served a six-year term with OPUS and was a representative on the Alumni Association Board and the University Senate. In 2010 she received the OPUS Lifetime Achievement Award.

"Mary Schisler, a long-time friend of University Players and School of Dramatic Art, will be fondly remembered for her flare for life and passion for the arts,” said Tina Pugliese, Director of the School of Dramatic Art.

“She was a devoted patron, supporting the school, students and faculty.  Her generosity of spirit has left its mark.  She will be missed."
