An open letter from alumnus Dennis Hrycaiko

Can you think of something you’re proud of? I can. Joining the Bisons and winning the National Championship back to back in ’69 and ’70. We made history! And it made me realize the importance of competing at a high level.

Studying at the University of Manitoba changed the course of my life forever. Not only because I learned a lot about my chosen fields — Physical Education and Teaching — but because of the kind of person it shaped me to be.

I met my wife, Ruth, at the University. She became an educator, and so did I — teaching at UM for 34 years. And when it was time for their undergrad studies, both of our children chose UM. We owe a debt of gratitude to the school for so many good memories. And that’s why I’m writing you today.
