Paying Tribute to the Past, Empowering the Future:
WSC’s Heritage Inspires Support for Local Youth

Western Surety Company proudly sponsors the Notre Dame Hounds athletic program in memory of Lionel Ray, former WSC President (Leo Ell succeeded Lionel Ray in 1978). The donation, awarded as a bursary fund annually, covers the cost of tuition for one Notre Dame student athlete per year. On a macro level, Notre Dame has been blessed with appreciable donations from One Life Makes a Difference Foundation; founded by Paul & Carol Hill in the 1990s. The Hill family’s association with Athol Murray College of Notre Dame spans well over 70 years rooted in our current Chairman’s Grandfathers’ lifelong relationship with Notre Dame College founder, Athol ‘Père’ Murray. Scott Donald, President & CEO of WSC ‘of course, we are referring to Matthew Hill and the late Frederick W. Hill’. Fred Hill also became Notre Dame College’s first President after the Passing of Père Murray in 1975 and served as Chancellor of Notre Dame’s Board of Regents for nearly two decades.

The Hill family remains active at Athol Murray College of Notre Dame. Matthew Hill currently serves on Notre Dame’s Board of Regents as a Director and the Audit and Finance Committee. He is also Co-Chair of the Centennial Campaign, which is the College’s fundraising campaign for capital projects. The President’s house on the Wilcox campus is named the Mulvihill House, after the family name of Fred Hill’s wife, Shirley. Also, a student dorm is named after Fred Hill and the off-ice Hockey Skills Centre is named after Paul & Carol Hill.
