On Saturday, the University of Ottawa presented Jim Orban, publisher of the Ottawa Citizen newspaper, with its inaugural "Just One Person" community award, "acknowledging the contributions of a citizen of Ottawa who’s helped ensure the health and well-being of children and families." More than 300 people gathered at a reception prior to the Ottawa Senators game, raising over $35,000 for the "Just One Person" scholarship program for youth-in-care. The program is a partnership between uOttawa, the Ottawa Senators Foundation, and the Max Keeping Foundation. uOttawa media release
