Paddon Thompson, BSc’10, graduated from Geological Engineering at Queen’s University in 2010. He lost his battle to cancer in 2012. Paddon possessed a permanent smile, a wonderful sense of humour and a positive outlook on life.
Paddon spoke passionately about the value of his engineering degree, emphasizing the importance of field studies in his education. Paddon was concerned, however, that the extra cost of this experience could create a financial burden for many students.
The Paddon Thompson Memorial Geological Field Studies Fund, established in October 2012, with an initial pledge by his family, was created to honour Paddon’s passion for field studies.
Please join us in building this endowed fund to support future students.
