Bursary set up in teen’s memory

The family of Shane Gorner, the teen who died this summer in a workplace accident at Dinoflex, has established a memorial scholarship fund

The family of Shane Gorner, the teen who died this summer in a workplace accident at Dinoflex, has established a memorial scholarship fund with the Shuswap Community Foundation.

Once the capital of the fund reaches $10,000, income earned on the Fund will be disbursed annually to the Board of Education of School District # 83 for a bursary which will be provided on an annual basis to a Grade 12 student attending Salmon Arm Senior Secondary who, among other things, demonstrates talent in the arts, particularly the performing arts, visual arts or music.

Donations can be made to this fund by contacting the Shuswap Community Foundation. Information can be found online on the foundation website: www.shuswapfoundation.ca or call 250-832-5428.
