B. Jean Kingsley
A simple thank you could never convey the enormity of B. Jean Kingsley’s influence on my academic success. Her magnificently stocked bookshelves, position at OISE, introducing me to the wonders of higher education, and her precious time spent at the kitchen table listening, guiding, editing, and encouraging me profoundly guided the trajectory of my life. She paid for my first semester in higher ed, which, by extension, led to my own children being able to achieve their educational goals. Jean’s generosity has been a gift that continues to give, one that could never be repaid, but one that, through the establishment of the B. Jean Kingsley scholarship for the Activity Care Professional Program at Collin College, we will attempt to continue to pay forward . .
