Meet the Class of 2014 Valedictorian
My name is Melissa Nantais and I am excited to be completing my fifth year at Brescia in an Honors Specialization in Psychology. These past five years have been some of the most challenging years of my life, but I wouldn’t trade them for the world. Throughout my time here I have been involved in a number of extracurricular activities. Through these many extracurricular activities, and my many years as a Brescia student, I have learned so much about myself. I have also been fortunate to work alongside so many of my fellow graduates, whom I know will go on to do remarkable things. I am grateful for all of the opportunities that my time at Brescia has afforded me, and am committed now to finding ways to give back to the Brescia and Western communities. I know that each and every one of you have your own Brescia story and it would be an honour to represent and share that story with the graduating class as we celebrate everything that we have accomplished.

Class of 2014 Legacy Project
Your final days on campus are fast approaching and what better way to commemorate your years at Brescia than leaving behind a legacy? The Class of 2014 Legacy Project is an initiative that looks to create a way for graduating students to be recognized beyond their years at Brescia University College.
The goal is to raise funds by your final graduation day on June 16, 2014. Depending on how much is raised, the Class of 2014 could direct their donations to a plant a tree, or to help furnish a new residence room, or to another area of the University that is important to the Class. There are three simple ways you can help create that legacy:
- Round-up your Baccalaureate/Magisterial and /or Convocation fee by $5.00 (or choose your own amount) on your registration form above;
- Make a donation online or use the donation form;
- Ask a fellow graduate, friend, or a parent to sponsor your Legacy Project and they can make a donation online or use the donation form.
If you would like to get involved, or have any questions, please Trish Gergich in the Brescia Foundation office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
