The campaign has already transformed the Mount Allison cam-
pus. Over the past eight years JUMP funding has been behind the
creation of the Wallace McCain Student Centre, the Ron Joyce
Centre for Business Studies, the Harold Crabtree Aqualab: Centre
for Aquatic Sciences, and the Purdy Crawford Centre for the Arts,
which is currently under construction.
"It was clear that Mount Allison was entering a new era and to do the
things that it needed to do to become a world-class institution, it need-
ed to raise funding," says campaign chair Scott McCain ('78), Presi-
dent and Chief Operating Officer of the Agribusiness Group at Maple
Leaf Foods.
McCain says one of the most fulfilling achievements of the JUMP
campaign for him is the Wallace McCain Student Centre -- and not because it
bears his late father's name.
