Walter and Joan Flewelling were lifelong residents and enthusiastic supporters of Greater Saint John. They were married fifty-six years and raised a family of four: Barbara, now deceased, Gordon, Richard and Stephen. They have ten grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. They shared with them their keen interest in community involvement, post-secondary education and healthcare.
Ardent advocates for a Saint John University, the Flewellings were cognizant of its critical value to community development and need to achieve excellence. They admired the strength of local support for UNB Saint John and had a keen interest in the Masters of Business Administration (MBA) program. The Flewellings established a fund in 2008, which will award annual scholarships at the Saint John Campus of the University of New Brunswick for graduate students enrolled at UNBSJ in a MBA program. It is based on the successful student demonstrating a combination of academic excellence and involvement in extracurricular and community affairs.
