Dean’s celebration raises scholarship funds

Almost 200 celebrants of Cecil Houston’s 10 years as dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences raised more than $5,000 in his honour for the African Diaspora Youth Scholarship fund.

Guest speakers at a gala held May 9 included current students, faculty, staff and members of the broader community, recalling the accomplishments of Dr. Houston’s tenure.

“It was a wonderful evening,” said organizer Janee Stallard-Cogliati. “We would like to thank everyone who attended and those who contributed in so many ways to its success.”
