Catharine Eckersley, BA'10, and Nathan Madigan, BSc'11, are happy to announce their engagement on December 21, 2015. Despite their time at Western overlapping from 2007-2010, they didn't meet until 2015 in Calgary. They instantly bonded over their purple pride when Nathan invited Catharine to attend a Rick McGhie Heads West alumni event! Nathan works for Alberta Transportation as an Infrastructure Engineer in Calgary, and Catharine will be completing her Master of Occupational Therapy degree at UBC this July. Over Christmas Catharine and Nathan visited Western on a snowy afternoon. They are now proud to say they both were at Westerm at the same time, together. They plan to wed in Banff, Alberta in March of 2017.
