The Harvey Fine Memorial Bursary

Donor Story:

This Prize is in honour of Harvey Fine, B.Com ’72.

Harvey was a free spirit.  He walked his own walk, usually with a canine companion.  He talked his own talk, always with a smile.  Harvey was profoundly committed to friends, fitness, and fun.

All the while, Harvey privately bore the weight of a heavy burden – the burden of life-long depression.  Finally, in August 2013, he decided it was time to rest.

It is hoped that the assistance provided by this prize will aid future students of the Smith School of Business, by reducing the weight of financial burdens and help them to live life to the fullest, as Harvey did.

This seems a fitting tribute to Harv, a man who, with his unique spirit, courage, and friendship, made a difference in his all-too-short time with us.
