The Vegreville Fire Department Club has awarded the first of what they hope will be an on-going post-secondary institution scholarship ...
This year’s recipient was Katherine Geibelhaus who, along with having worked at the Town of Vegreville’s Aquatic and Fitness center, will be continuing her education in sciences this year.
Senior Fire Fighter Alan Robert says the club is hoping this scholarship will be the first of many moving forward.
He notes that the scholarship was originally going to be set up to reward graduating members of the Junior Fire Fighter program but the committee later decided to expand the opportunity to all students.
Robert adds that the funds awarded through the scholarship are a collection of donations from the fire fighters themselves.
Students interested in learning more about the Vegreville Fire Department Club’s scholarship, including required criteria and the application process, can speak with their respective high schools.
