Wendy Ruth Nickerson Memorial Bursary

This annual bursary is in memory of Wendy Ruth Nickerson, born in 1970. Wendy will always be remembered as a most caring and loving person. Wendy was a teacher and guidance counsellor at Barrington Municipal High School.

On her family's initiative, Wendy agreed that a bursary be established in her name to help caring and compassionate students in furthering their education after completing high school. The award should be given to a student who has had a difficult start and has the demonstrated ability to overcome challenges.

The guidance counsellors and principal of Barrington Municipal High School determine the bursary recipient. The financial need and academic achievement of the student is considered in deciding the bursary recipient. The Wendy Ruth Nickerson Memorial Bursary recipients are as follows:

You can make a donation by issuing a cheque, money order or donation payable to the
