OPTIMIST CLUB of PUSLINCH AWARDS SCHOLARSHIPS for 2018

Don McKay

The Optimist Club of Puslinch has once again awarded scholarships to assist youth and families of the Township of Puslinch with educational expenses and to promote the Club as an organization committed to the advancement of education. This is the 17th year that the Club has offered the scholarship program. Three scholarships of $1000 each were available for the 2018-2019 school year. The scholarships were split into three streams; an academic scholarship; a community college scholarship; and a vocational-technical scholarship. At the closing date for submissions the Club only had submissions for the academic scholarship and community college scholarship. There were no submissions for the vocational-technical scholarship. The committee then agreed to award two academic scholarships and one community college scholarship. This year’s three recipients are; Ms. .Madison Ross and Mr. William Callum Wareham for the academic scholarships and Mr. Gibson Helm for the community college scholarship. As in the past the selection committee had a difficult time given the high caliber of applications from the youth of Puslinch.

 

The Optimist Club wishes to thank all those who submitted applications and wish them well in their careers.
