Brock gifted $1M from Robertson family

May 2, 2019

Brock University has received $1M and a painting in memory of Joe, Anita, and Laura Robertson from the Robertson family. A Brock release states that Joe Robertson served as Chair on Brock’s Board of Trustees from 2012-14, while his wife Anita volunteered with the university and the Niagara community. The couple’s daughter, Laura, had been recently hired to work with Brock’s Athletics and Recreation Department. The three were killed in a plane crash in 2018. A release states that Brock will add $600K to the $1M donation, which will establish an endowment to create and fund the Joe Robertson Awards for students in the Goodman School of Business and the Anita Robertson Awards for Nursing students. Brock (ON)
