A Community Event
were present to receive scholarships and bursaries to help fund their studies. In all, this year the Lampe Foundation was able to give out 30 awards, including awards at all high schools in the historic Eastern Townships and at all levels of post-secondary study.
The evening recognized nursing students like Emily MacGregor and Jill Guthrie, who are returning to school for a career change, young student Miriam Bass who is discovering how inspiring science can be, and medical student Cheryl Brus Peterson, who will contribute to her community by helping to fill the gap in physician availability.
A true community event, the awards night saw the next generation of doctors, nurses, teachers and artists encouraged by the presence of educational institutions, local foundations, government leadership, and community associations. Lampe Foundation co-president Carol Mooney animated the soirée, and award winners felt free to express their words of appreciation in either English or French. Representatives from Bishop’s University, Champlain Regional College, Lennoxville Vocational Training Centre and the École de Réadaptation de l’Université de Sherbrooke were on site to hand out the awards to the students from their prospective schools.
Community building is often most effective through partnerships, and the 30 scholarships were only possible thanks to the support of various individual and institutional donors. The now-dissolved Sherbrooke Hospital Foundation remains active through a partnership with the Lampe Foundation, which administers awards to students in the health professions.
For the second year, Mike Everett of the Tillotson Coaticook Region Fund presented awards offered jointly by the Fund and the Lampe Foundation to students from the Coaticook and surrounding region.
The evening was also marked by the presentation of a cheque for $4 000 from the local CFUW chapter. The donation is earmarked to endow a scholarship for a female student with high academic achievement and significant leadership contribution at Bishop’s, a scholarship which was first awarded in 1976.
With 30 awards given out in 2013-2014, the Foundation is supporting more local students than ever. Today’s ambitious youth are the future of our community. The Foundation and it’s donors are proud

you are very hard to find. Each morning when we awake
we know that you are gone. And no one knows the heartache
as we try to carry on. Our hearts still ache with sadness and secret tears still flow. What it meant to lose you
no one will ever know. Our thoughts are always with you,
your place no one can fill. In life we loved you dearly; in
death we love you still. There will always to be a heartache,
and often a silent tear. But always a precious memory of the days when you were here. If tears would make a staircase, and heartaches make a lane, We’d walk the path to heaven
and bring you home again. We hold you close within our hearts; and there you will remain, To walk with us throughout our
lives until we meet again. Our family chain is broken now,
and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again With all our love,
