Small university comes together for big Olympic send-off

Thursday, February 06, 2014   by: Staff



Mother of Olympic curlers travels to Sochi this week
Algoma University’s staff, faculty, and students surprised staff member Sue Harnden yesterday with a warm send-off celebration, before beginning her journey to Sochi, Russia to cheer on her two sons, Olympic curlers Ryan and EJ Harnden.

Harnden, a staff member for over 30 years at Algoma University, was moved to tears when she left her office at 4:30 p.m. to see her fellow colleagues and students lining the halls to wish her safe travels and show their support for Team Jacobs, the curlers with close ties to the University.

Staff lined the hall outside her office, waving Canadian flags and chanting “Go Canada Go!”

Algoma University would like to wish Sue, her husband Eric, and the Jacobs rink safe travels.

The University also wishes Team Jacobs and the rest of Team Canada the best of luck at the 2014 Olympics!
