TWO BROTHERS WHO IN THEIR LIVES GREATLY AFFECTED THE TELEVISION PRODUCTION INDUSTRY CONTINUE TO DO SO AS
|Don McLean wanted to ensure that his brother Ross McLean continued to be remembered for his tremendous contribution to Canadian television. Prior to becoming ill, Don was in contact with Ryerson regarding the fund, which in his perspective was not producing a significant reward to the students who received it. It was Don’s intention to make a contribution to increase the endowment and keep the award, along with his brothers’ remembrance alive. Unfortunately, Don succumbed to his illness before he was able to do so. It was while he was addressing the revitalization of the award, that Don took pause to reflect on his own days and quietly expressed that he at times wondered if he himself would be remembered. Today, the memorial fund has been expanded to represent both brothers and in an effort to ensure that Don’s and Ross’ vision is secured for the future, we ask that you consider making a donation to help develop the future talent that was so important to them. Any and all amounts are appreciated. Don always took the big jobs and the small!
