Criteria for this scholarship: mature student or past graduate (1 year +) seeking to return to a community college or other post-secondary institution for further education; caring, helpful attitude, high financial need; student/individual having a commitment to continuous learning and community involvement.
Linda Fehr presented said scholarship in the amount of $500 to Oxana Kilikova on Tuesday, July 2, 2019
Oxana moved to Canada seven years ago trained as a teacher and has been working in the early development child care industry here in the Morden Winkler area ever since. Oxana is now looking to upgrade her education in the child care area at Red River College in Winkler but with raising four boys, finances are always an issue.
After working at Red River College in Winkler, Linda Fehr realizes there are so many people that return to the classroom from a working life but don’t always have the extra money to fulfill their goal. It is with great pleasure that Linda Fehr is able to help ease the burden a bit with with scholarship.
