A Com­mu­nity Event

Stanstead Journal - - HISTORY -

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,

Your Fam­ily
