for his contribution to the university’s Hospitality Management
Program on May 15. Inaugurated in 1998-99 during Mount Saint Vincent’s 125th
Anniversary Year, this award recognizes exceptional volunteer
contributions to the University over many years.
“Glenn Squires has been a steadfast champion of the Mount, and his
continued leadership exemplifies the power of ‘community’ in the Mount’s
unique education. Glenn’s dedication to the Tourism and Hospitality
Management Program has been formidable. For over a decade the proceeds
from Glenn’s Pacrim Invitational Golf Tournament supported the

scholarly activities and provide funding for program needs, enhance the
educational experience of students in that program”, said Ramona
