Cloverdale: On Feb 7, $20,000 was donated to Kwantlen Polytechnic University to establish a scholarship in memory of one of the innocent victims of the 2007 Surrey Six shooting.
The Ed Schellenberg Memorial Endowed Scholarship was created with funds raised by five golf tournaments organized in memory of both victims.
The annual scholarship will recognize a student enrolled in KPU’s appliance servicing program who demonstrates financial need. Like Mr. Schellenberg, the recipient of the $1,000 scholarship will be a student who is passionate about giving to others, both at work and in life.
Lois Schellenberg; Brian White and Kevin Ford, who were instrumental in organizing the memorial golf tournaments; Jeff Norris, Chief Advancement Officer at KPU; Henry Reiser, Dean of Trades and Technology at KPU; and many KPU representatives were present at the event.
