The story of the ‘Building of Macdonald College’ was featured as part McGill’s ongoing Bicentennial celebrations. The McGill Board of Governors officially welcomed the new college on June 18, 1906. The College structure, consisting of the School of Agriculture, the School of Household Science, and the School for Teachers, reflected Sir William Macdonald’s conviction that “farm, home, and school” were the three pillars of society.

Congratulations to Retiree (2012) Toni Bird named an Unsung Hero as part of the #McGill200 Bicentennial Celebrations!

Over nearly four decades in a variety of roles ranging from Faculty Club Coordinator to Student Affairs professional, Toni built relationships between the Faculty and its staff and students.
A committed, dedicated, accomplished and compassionate professional, she was a trusted ally and a very well respected member of the Macdonald community who is most deserving of this award.

Every institution has a number of people who become the face of that organization. But for every recognizable “star,”, there is a bevy of unsung heroes who quietly go about their work, making things happen. We call these people “the unsung heroes,”, and nobody embodies the spirit of that definition at McGill more than Nancy Lavigne.
