MARGOT McGRATH-HARDING MEMORIAL ENDOWMENT
"I can still hear her laugh."
Betty Jean Reid remembers the tiny, cramped office where Margot McGrath-Harding used to work as Co-ordinator of the Intervenor for Deafblind Persons Program: "She was always patient, she always had time for people. She had an ability to touch each person and make them feel that you were a good student and had potential, and you could do it."
In recognition of Margot’s tremendous contribution, family, friends and colleagues established the Margot McGrath-Harding Memorial Endowment in 2009 to provide an annual scholarship to a full-time student in the Intervenor Program.
"An Intervenor’s biggest reward is watching other people reach their potential – watching them gain their place in the real world."

"I have enjoyed being an Intervenor from the moment I started at George Brown College. I find this work challenging, interesting and rewarding. I haven’t regretted for one moment going back to school to follow this career path. Thank you George Brown College for having a program like this available and to all the teachers in the program. Thank you to all of the Intervenors I have met and have yet to meet, who have inspired me to reach my potential while helping individuals who are deafblind meet theirs."
