Every year the Association of Kinsmen Clubs of Canada awards bursaries to graduating students across the country through the Hal Rogers Endowment Fund. The fund is sponsored by all Kinsmen and Kinettes Clubs across Canada.
This year there were over 500 applications for the 50 bursaries.
Ladysmith High School graduating student, Melissa Mrus, was one of the lucky students who was selected to receive one of $1,000 bursaries. Kinsmen President, Steve Dinsmore, is shown presenting Melissa with her certificate at the club’s last meeting.
Melissa will be attending Vancouver Island University starting in September.
