Pinawa Foundation Presents Community Scholarships at Graduation

The Pinawa Foundation presented two $500 scholarships at Pinawa’s Graduation Ceremony on June 28. “We selected two students who have demonstrated an active interest in their school as well as their larger community of Pinawa” said Carol Findlay, the Foundation’s Treasurer. “The Foundation had a successful year in 2011 and as we continue to grow we are proud to assist students who are starting their post-secondary education”.
