The Eric Gutknecht Memorial Bursary (now a registered charity for income tax purposes) was created soon after Eric's passing on June 25, 2010. Several individuals touched by this tragedy stepped forward to be part of the executive which now consists of 10 active members (see page 8). Many others continue to help out in various other ways.
Many events have already taken place, while more are in their planning stages, all to raise money to support this bursary. The bursary will be awarded annually to a grade 12 student, at both, North Grenville District High School and at St. Michael Catholic High School in Kemptville, who is planning post secondary education in one of Eric's favorite subjects which include photography, psychology, philosophy, and history. The awards' committee at both schools and in conjunction with the executive of the bursary, have set the criteria that will be utilized in deciding the annual winners.
The winners will receive a cash award and a keeper plaque , while the schools will proudly display their own plaque with the annual winners' names engraved thereon.
Many thanks to all those who have held and continue to hold Eric dear in their hearts and those who have contributed to this bursary to help make it the success that is realized today!
