The Haliburton Scout Reserve Staff Alumni Association is proud to continue its tradition of awarding a bursary each year to a member of the current staff who is beginning or continuing his or her post-secondary education when this summer ends. 24 bursaries have been awarded since 1998, and the winner of the 25th is Jacob Ursulak.
Jacob started at HSR as a camper in 2008, joining the staff in 2010. During that time, he has worked with Alumni member Ken Wrigglesworth to reinvigorate the Trapper’s Cabin program, won a purple bead and shared a Supervisor’s Award. Given the reaction in the Hub when his name was announced (a loud, sincere and heartfelt standing ovation), there is no doubt that many of his HSR friends could add something to this list of accomplishments.
This fall, he is attending the University of Waterloo to pursue a degree in Environmental Engineering, and the HSRSAA is very pleased to be able to make a contribution towards making that possible.
