Grenfell Matters

Marketing and Communications

Grenfell Matters introduction, as appeared in The Western Star newspaper's Feb. 7, 2018 edition:

It’s a new page for us here at The Western Star, one that we’re hoping you’ll be as excited about as we are. Today, we begin our “Grenfell Matters” feature, a weekly snippet of the stories and people who inspire them from Corner Brook’s Memorial University campus.

Once a week, we will expand our coverage of the school by having leaders of Grenfell tell the stories that are important to them.

Why is Grenfell so important to us? For starters, if you add the students, staff and faculty, you have a population comparable to the Town of Massey Drive. More importantly, though, the work that’s happening at the institution has the potential to affect one and all in western Newfoundland, from the environmental research, to the deep dive into farming, to the cultural footprint left by its fine arts programs, and hundreds more.

We’re hoping by sharing the stories of Grenfell, we’ll help highlight some of work that many now consider a long climb “up the hill.”

Grenfell is our university.

The students are many of our youth.

The staff and faculty are our family, friends and neighbours.

Let’s all take it a step further and ensure we also celebrate their stories as our own.
