HLW Scholarship Fund

Harold (Hank) Leith Willis Memorial Scholarship Fund

Hank WillisFriends and family have generously donated funds to establish the Harold (Hank) Leith Willis Memorial Scholarship Fund, in his memory.

Hank was always a strong believer in the value of education in all its diverse forms and believed that volunteerism and community involvement was both a privilege and a responsibility for all community members. His life was a living testament to this belief. Hank was a member of the Steering Committee for the establishment of the Community Foundation and served as its charter President for 2 years. He was also involved in the early planning for the Aron Theatre Cooperative and the proposed Multi-Use Recreational Facillity for Campbellford.

This award will be presented annually to a student graduating from Campbellford District High School who is pursuing post-secondary education. The successful candidate shall have two or more of the following criteria to be eligible for the scholarship:

      • Demonstrate community involvement inside and outside the school community
      • An A- or B+ grade average (not the highest mark)
      • A volunteer in the community, a leader that gets involved on their own volition
      • May enter into social services or education as a career

Congratulations to our Past Recipients:
