Royal Canadian Legion Supports Local Youth Through Bursaries
February 14, 2019 – Vernon, BC – Vernon’s Royal Canadian Legion Branch 25 presented School District Superintendent Joe Rogers with a cheque in the amount of $12,000. The funds will provide three $1000 bursaries to the graduating students at the four Vernon high schools.
Jennifer Pace, Legion President, said “The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 25 is committed to supporting Veterans and their families. As a result, we are pleased to make this contribution to local youth.”
The Legion has been providing bursaries for Vernon students for over eight years. Recipients of the bursaries must meet the criteria of having a current or past relative in the armed services and a financial need.
“Many students are faced with a financial barrier when pursuing a post-secondary education,” said Joe Rogers, School District 22 Superintendent. “We are grateful for community contributions, such as this one from the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 25. We are also thankful for the support the Vernon Legion gives to our schools through other events such as our Remembrance Day assemblies and the No Stone Left Alone ceremony held at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery.”
School District 22 offers over 175 different scholarships and bursaries, thanks to many community partners. The window for scholarship/bursary applications begins February 25, 2019. Students should contact the school councillors for more information.
