Mary Lou Ogle Scholarship for the Study of Communications


Mary Lou Ogle’s life has often focused on helping others. For 25 years she worked as a registered nurse taking care of patients. Then in 1979 following her brother’s successful election as MP for Saskatoon-East, Mary Lou relocated to Saskatoon to work at his Saskatoon constituency office. Once her brother’s health began to fail, Mary Lou became his primary caregiver, returning to her nursing background. Since his passing, Mary Lou maintains a regular volunteer schedule and continues “to help my friends as much as I can.†That is part of the reason she chose to leave a bequest to The Saskatoon Foundation. After researching The Saskatoon Foundation, she discovered she genuinely believed in its philosophy of improving quality of life for all. Mary Lou’s bequest will fund a scholarship for a young man or woman from Saskatchewan to study communications at a Saskatchewan post-secondary institution.
