2018 Scholarship Recipient
Information about this scholarship:
The Don & Jean Sloan Scholarship Fund was established to encourage and reward youth who have made a difference in their communities. A $1,000 scholarship is awarded annually through YVC to the individual chosen.
Don Sloan served on YVC’s board from its inception until his passing in 2013, and he served as the chairman for 15 years. The scholarship was established as a gift from Don and Jean’s daughter Julie in honor of her parents.
YVC is excited to announce the recipient of the 2018 scholarship: Jessica Vu, a volunteer with YVC of Calgary.Jessica has served 1,626 hours with YVC while balancing a variety of other extracurricular activities. She has consistently been a leader in her program, and her community. Due to Jessica’s excellence as well as that of our entire network of volunteers, we have created and awarded her the Legacy Award to recognize those who have volunteered more than 1,500 hours with YVC!
The scholarship committee was extremely impressed with the quality of applications this year. The Sloan family is always so inspired by getting to know just a few of our amazing youth volunteers through this application process.
The annual deadline for the Don and Jean Sloan Scholarship is April 30. Please check back again in 2019 for the next opportunity to apply for the Sloan Youth Service Scholarship.
