A Clearwater Secondary School student has been selected to receive a large entrance bursary at Thompson Rivers University (TRU).

Allyson Watson graduated from Clearwater Secondary last June and started studying heavy-duty mechanics at TRU in September.

The bursary is worth $1,000.

The bursary was created by Anne and Roland Neave when they donated $20,000 to the TRU Foundation in 2017.

Interest earned each year from this endowment funds the annual bursary.

The award is named the Charles and Jean Whittaker Memorial Bursary for Anne’s parents who were both teachers in Nanaimo.

The Neaves added another $20,000 to the endowment a month ago, so there will be two bursaries of $1,000 each available for Clearwater Secondary students entering TRU in the fall of 2019.
