Donations to the Kettle Valley Scholarship & Bursary Society helps West Boundary grads as they continue their studies this fall

Time is short, but it is not yet too late to make a donation to the Kettle Valley Bursary and Scholarship Society’s 2014 campaign.

No donation is too small and all donations are tax deductible.

The money that flows through this group each year goes to help deserving young Boundary Central Senior Secondary graduates as they begin their transition to post-secondary education.

Increasing tuition fees make it very difficult for our promising young students to make that transition. They will have enough to focus on this September as they learn to adapt to new systems of learning and, inevitably, much larger class sizes.

Scholarships and bursaries are an excellent way to help our local youth continue their education.

The society has been helping Boundary graduates achieve their goals since 1965.

President Leslie Walker says that virtually all of the money given to the society is passed on to deserving graduates. Only some $70 is needed for administrative overhead each year, and that is used for postage to connect with those who have donated in past years and to send out tax receipts.

Once again: no donation is too small. All funds are pooled and therefore your donation of $20 or $100 will become part of something much larger. If you would like to make a donation send your cheque to the Kettle Valley Scholarship and Bursary Society, Box 362, Midway, B.C. V0H 1M0.

If you would like more information you can call society president Leslie Walker at 250-449-2172.

Graduation ceremonies will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 14 at the Midway Arena.
