Media Release: Grey Sauble Conservation Foundation Awards 2021 Scholarship

July 8, 2021

For Immediate Release

The Grey Sauble Conservation Foundation awards an annual $1000 scholarship to a graduating secondary school student entering a post-secondary program in an environmental or resource management related field. The scholarship is named in honour of Malcolm Kirk, who passed away in 2012. Mr. Kirk was instrumental in acquiring 80% of the lands that Grey Sauble Conservation Authority owns and manages today.

This year, the recipient of the Malcolm Kirk Environmental Scholarship is Janna Wardell, a student from Owen Sound District Secondary School who will be pursuing post-secondary education in Environmental Engineering at the University of Guelph.

In the recommendation letter for this scholarship, Janna is described by one of her high school teachers as a highly deserving individual who “always demonstrated an excellent work ethic, and as a result was always successful at achieving her goals. Her positive attitude and inquisitive nature were a wonderful addition to the class.” Janna is also an outstanding athlete and a valuable member of many school and community teams, including skiing, mountain biking, lacrosse, and hockey.

Janna’s future goals are to have a career in the field of water resources and environmental protection, and she plans to continue supporting her community after finishing university. “When I graduate, I hope to return to the Grey Bruce area to live and work. This is a wonderful area, and I would love to keep it healthy for future generations” Janna Wardell.

Each year through an application process, students may apply for this valuable scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to a graduating student in the Grey Sauble Conservation Authority watershed who plans to enter an environmental program at a college or university. The deadline for applications for next year’s scholarship is May 31, 2022.
