December 21, 2023 — 
First-year Juris Doctor student Tréchelle Bunn finished her first term of law school on a high note as the inaugural recipient of the newly-established Wendy Whitecloud Bursary in Law. The Bursary was established in 2022 to be awarded annually to a First Nation, Inuit or Métis female or transfeminine student enrolled in her first year of full-time studies at the Faculty of Law, University of Manitoba. According to Métis alum Roxanne Gagné [LLB/2008] who initiated the bursary fund, she and other members of the legal profession contributed to the fund to give back to community and support diversity in the legal profession as well as help forge a path towards reconciliation by making legal education attainable to such students.
