Vera Pezer

Vera Pezer’s life-long commitment to learning and her love of sport have their roots in Meskanaw, the small Saskatchewan community where she was raised. The Little Community That Could, Vera’s third book, is the story of her community and how it contributed to journeys resulting in a Ph.D. in Psychology, a career at the University of Saskatchewan (culminating in terms as Chancellor), national championships in curling and softball, and coaching roles at two Olympics.
