Why I Give to York

Brian Clow (BA '67, MA '89)

"When I left Glendon in the late 1960s, I packed away my motorcycle and picked up the chalk. For more than three decades, I led class discussions on Shakespeare in high schools across Toronto.

As it turned out, many of my students had a thing or two to teach me about ability and access to education. I saw, in many of them, the will and enthusiasm to pursue post-secondary study. Unfortunately, they all too often lacked the financial resources to do so. I wondered how I could help, and was inspired to create a bequest in my will to support students at Glendon.

Some things never change. I'm back on a motorbike. And I'm still helping students—this time with a modest legacy that has a Harley-sized impact on students at Glendon."
