Alumni Western Be Extraordinary The Campaign For Western

Award supports students in need

Award supports students in need

Mr. Holden J. Rhodes who studied Law at Western in 1995-1996 and holds an LLB’95 from the University of Birmingham, has established an annual award to assist a Faculty of Law student in financial need. His gift will provide four annual awards of $5,000.

“It takes a great deal of perseverance and financial resources to get into and through law school,” said Rhodes. “I had a little help from my parents along the way and my wife and I wanted to give back to others that needed support,” he said.

Rhodes practiced corporate law with McKenzie Lake Lawyers LLP in London, Ont. for 17 years. He co-founded CarProof in 2000, a valuable tool for purchasing used cars, and sold the company in December 2015. The successful business entrepreneur then purchased Killarney Mountain Lodge in January 2015, and in March 2016, purchased another resort property, The Sportsman Inn.
