A writer and philanthropist from Winnipeg became a new chancellor at the University of Manitoba.
Anne Mahon was elected on Tuesday. Now she will be the main person when it comes to the assignment of diplomas and degrees.
The writer is this university graduate and she has written two books about the province. One of them is about former members of the Winnipeg gang. In addition, the woman was actively involved in charity and helped many people in need, including immigrants and refugees.
David Barnard, U of M president and vice-chancellor, said he is sure Mahon will become a great example for all students and will do an excellent job on her position.
