Ann Louise Carson BSc(Agr)’81 immersed herself in Mac traditions. She is now supporting them for the next generation through a legacy gift.

Ann Louise Carson BScAgr’81, is a quintessential Mac grad. A third-generation Mac student and proud alum, she went on to a successful executive career in Canada’s dairy industry.

“Mac was a dream come true,” says Carson. “Studying agriculture on a beautiful campus, access to barns and an arboretum, and the credibility of a McGill degree – it doesn’t get much better!”

Carson took full advantage of her time on campus: competing with the Woodsmen, organizing College Royals with the Livestock Club, and making lifelong friends.

“Mac was huge in my formative years,” recalls Carson. “Not just in my family, but among neighbours, friends, and extended family. There were always green-and-gold jackets around, and such respect for the institution.”
