The Alumni Association recognized early on that it could give back to the camp by starting up a bursary to be awarded to a current staff member who is going into post-secondary studies following the summer. We thought this would help the camp hang on to good,experienced people for a little longer.
We think it might be working, and we are very pleased to be doing it again for the 30th time.
The submissions, as always, were excellent and the Selection Committee’s decision was a tough one.
This year’s recipient is Theodore Schlotzhauer.
Theo has been in Scouting since joining Beavers as a young lad, coming full-circle to become a Beaver Leader so that he could continue in Scouting when there were not enough people to start a Venturer Company in his area.
HSR has been part of Theo’s summer for seven summers, including four as a member of the HSR Staff. In his application, he stated, “there’s nothing I could think of that I would rather be doing during my summer”.
So say we all.
Theo will begin studies this fall at the University of Waterloo in mechanical engineering.
Congratulations to Theo, the winner of the 2018 HSR Staff Alumni Association Bursary Award.
