TroVal Scholarship Created

To the Editor;
I noted your article in the Aug 4/11 edition of The Capital regarding the recent Trochu School Reunion.
May I add to that story that in conjunction with that Reunion, the Classes of 1961, 1962, 1963 and 1964 raised over $18,000 for a multi-year $1500 per annun Scholarship Award to Trochu Grade 12 students, commencing with the 2011-2012 school year. The Award is estimated to last for in excess of 15 years.
The Award recipient will be decided annually by the Trochu School Awards Committee, and will be given based on superior academic standing, school and community involvement and leadership, student proceeding on to post-secondary education, and awarded on merit (not financial need).
