Memorial award planned in honor of teachers

Family and friends plan to create a memorial award for Skye and Courtney Buck

Dale Bass – Kamloops This Week

Family and friends of Skye and Courtney Buck plan to create a memorial award for the teachers who died in a car accident on Sunday, Dec. 9 near Clearwater.

Karen Gamarcy, development officer for the Thompson Rivers University Foundation, said the foundation was contacted to start the process to develop some sort of memorial for the pair.

Gamarcy said details will be worked out later but that it will be called the Skye and Courtney Buck Memorial Award.

“They were both alumni of TRU and close to the athletics department,” Gamarcy said. “This is a wonderful way to remember someone.”

The award, once established, will be part of an annual presentation at the university.

Often, Gamarcy said, family and friends who create memorial awards attend to meet with the recipient “and see something positive come from it.”

 

Donations can be made by cheque made out to the foundation, noting the name of the memorial in the subject line, and sent to900 McGill Rd., through credit card by calling 250-828-5264 or online at tru.ca/makeagift.
