One of the things that the Haliburton Scout Reserve Alumni Association is especially proud to be able to do is award a bursary each year to a member of the current staff who is beginning or continuing his or her post-secondary education when the summer ends.
We know that every little bit helps, and we know that the recipient will by definition be “wise in the use of the resource”. Because we believe that just choosing to work at HSR demonstrates an admirable strength of character, choosing a winner is always a difficult decision.
The winner of the 2012 HSRSAA Bursary was Michael Fengler, who had already graduated from Timmins’ Northern College as a Civil Engineering Technologist and has begun work at the University of New Brunswick this fall to start earning a Bachelor of Geomatics.
He has been coming to HSR since 2006, working there since 2008 and, like many of us, would love nothing more than to spend a few more summers there, and the HSR Staff Alumni Association is pleased to be able to make a small contribution towards making that possible.
