Alumni Golf Tournament Honours Paul Wilson

Trent alumni, and other members of the Trent family, turned out in record numbers for the annual Alumni Golf Tournament in Port Hope on Saturday, September 21.

93 golfers took part in the tournament to honour retired Athletics Director Paul Wilson. The net proceeds from the day’s activities are expected to top $5,000, and will be allocated to the PSB Wilson Fund for Athletics and Recreation.

Alumni Director Tony Storey noted that alumni from Ottawa, Barrie, Milton, the GTA, Southwest Ontario and Pennsylvania were present. "Alumni are very eager to pay tribute to Paul, and the amazing impact he has had on our university during his wonderful and inspiring career here," he said.

The Trent community was very well represented at the tournament, as faculty, staff, retired colleagues, first-year student Rob Wolff and Board members (including President Bonnie Patterson and former board Michael Beswick) all participated.

The PSB Wilson Fund for Athletics and Recreation (a permanent endowment fund) was launched in the spring of 2002 to honour the 36-year career of Paul Wilson, and to strengthen facilities and equipment at the Athletics Complex. The minimum goal of $100,000 has been exceeded with over $140,000 now received in donations and pledges. Team Wilson (a volunteer committee planning the fundraising campaign) is pleased to acknowledge the lead contribution of Peterborough’s AON Inc. in successfully establishing the Wilson Fund. Local lawyer and alumna Karen Sisson ’78 noted that Team Wilson is still working to attract new support: "The greater the endowment in the Wilson Fund, the more that can be achieved annually to strengthen the Athletics & Recreation operation at Trent. And we know how much that will please Paul."
