A thank you letter from JHR for our collaboration on the Journalism bursary for an indigenous student attending Loyalist College. We should all be proud of this endeavour. We have made a difference in this student’s life!
The CFUW Organizing Committee for the Town & Country Garden Tour presented a cheque for $12 185 to the CFUW VP of Scholarships, Laura Hare. Proceeds from this garden tour support scholarships for graduating students from the public and separate secondary schools in Hastings and Prince Edward who are pursuing post-secondary education.
Local area scholarship recipients have been presented with their awards. CFUW member Linda Richardson is seen here presenting to PECI graduate Emily Algar.
This year for the first time, a bursary of $2500 will be given to an Indigenous Journalism student sponsored jointly by Loyalist College, Journalists for Human Rights and CFUW Belleville and District.
This is in addition to the regular scholarships given out by the club. Thank you to all who went the extra distance to make this happen.
The scholarship committee is pleased to announce the winners of the CFUW Belleville & District scholarships for 2015. Students proceeding to university will be receiving $1500 and students going on to a community college will receive $1000.
The Scholarship committee is excited to announce that after ‘passing the hat’ at last night’s general meeting we have exceeded our goal of $2500 by $30 for our joint bursary with Journalists for Human Rights!
Thank you so much to every one who donated to this worthy cause.
Martha Grant and Susan Pine as co-chairs of The Valentine Bridge are thrilled to announce that this year’s event raised $1086.00! That amount has now been turned over to The Scholarship Fund.
They wish to thank those that helped with the set-up and the kitchen duties – Lee Casselman, Ann Lanning, Janet MacDonald and Cathy Warren. Also many thanks to all those who contributed the scrumptious desserts.
