Description: Granted to a third or fourth year full time undergraduate student enrolled in the Faculty of Business at UPEI who best exemplifies the spirit and legacy of Suzanne MacPherson.

Background: It was with great sadness that Stan and Heather MacPherson lost their darling daughter, Paula “Suzanne” MacPherson on March 31, 2016 at the age of 49. She resided in Arizona and was the proud and loving mother of Sarah Worth, cherished partner of Jason Smith, and loving sister of Cathy (Sean Grondin), Greg and Alex. Suzanne was a proud alumna of the University of Prince Edward Island (BBA ’93) and served as VP Finance on the UPEI Student Union Executive. Her career in business touched many. She was radiated a caring attitude and instilled a sense of purpose and encouragement in her colleagues. She was genuinely authentic with a determination to be honest and resilient. Suzanne was the definition of integrity. She will also be remembered for her selflessness and ability to light up a room with laughter. She is missed by so many. In the spring of 2018, Stan and Heather established this scholarship in memory of Suzanne. It is their hope that each year’s recipient will display some or all of Suzanne’s amazing attributes.
