The BCom’88 25th anniversary class reunion in October 2013 sparked countless memories of our time at Queen’s. Classmates came from far and wide to reconnect, reminisce and reflect on how far we’ve come since our wide-eyed frosh days. We decided that there could be no better way to mark this milestone than to establish an entrance award to give a deserving student the incalculable benefit of a Commerce education, immersed in the Queen’s tradition. We dedicated the Commerce 1988 Award to the memory of our dear classmates Chris Verney and Margie Philp — a wonderful legacy that they would have embraced.
