As Scholarship Chair at the WAAC since 2013, I feel privileged being part of its historical Scholarship Program, started in 1948, in support of students in the studies of all the Arts at post-secondary educational institutions.
Opportunities which brought me in close contact with the schools we support, gave me an understanding of their highest levels of scholastic standards, resulting in equally high levels of achievement by the students.
Post secondary education of this quality is costly. This is where our support has the most impact and earns the greatest reward.
We take pride in our role as historic long time supporters of some of the great Canadian Artists, Karen Kain, Rex Harrington, Measha Brueggergosman and Jean Stilwell among others. We are equally proud of our current support of future stars, performers, educators, leaders and role models who are on the cusp of professional careers and, who will contribute to the greater good of the Arts community, as well as the community at large.
