Scholarships and bursaries for class members for post-secondary total $85,000

The community lent its overwhelming support to the Chemainus Secondary School Class of 2019 with $85,000 in scholarships and bursaries.

Representatives of the various contributing clubs and groups were in attendance at Friday’s graduation ceremony at the school gymnasium to make the presentations.

The awards ranged from $3,000 to $100. Every bit helps the students further their post-secondary studies.

The Chemainus Health Care Auxiliary’s three $3,000 bursaries went to Morgan Bottomley, Hannah Pachet and Samantha Price for advancing into human care.

Bottomley and Price also won $1,500 Chemainus Health Care Foundation bursaries while Pachet was the $1,500 foundation scholarship recipient.

The Chemainus Rotary Club $2,500 scholarship was awarded to Will Ngenda.

Several organizations provided individual scholarships and bursaries valued at $1,000.

A complete rundown of the award winners will be published in next week’s Courier.
