On April 15th 2021, Queen’s University announced and celebrated the gifts behind completing Richardson Stadium through alumni giving. Over 300 alumni contributed more than $11 million to construct a new pavilion to enhance and complete the space. The lead gift came from Stu (Sc’74) and Kim Lang (ArtSci’76). Stu played varsity hockey and football with the Golden Gaels and went on to a professional career in the CFL and later became Receivers’ Coach and then Head Coach of the University of Guelph Gryphons.
Stu and Kim join us in this episode of Campus Beat to chat about their time at Queen’s, their moves to Edmonton and back to Oakville and Guelph through Stu’s illustrious sporting career. We also chat about Richardson Stadium and the many benefits for players, teams, students and spectators can enjoy with the construction of the new pavilion. We even get a better understanding of the importance of modernized equipment and facilities for athletes and some perspective on Stu’s experience transitioning from playing as a 5-time Grey Cup winning wide receiver to becoming a respected coach. A joyful conversation with two very enthusiastic alumni! Cha Gheill!
