The Leona Claes Memorial Bursary award was given out for the third year on Sunday afternoon.

This year’s recipient for the $1,000 bursary was Evelyn Krieger.

Claes had a great love of music, especially classical and knew all of the operas. Her family decided to memorialize her by helping students to pursue their dream of music.

Kreiger is a talented pianist and violinist with goals of getting her diploma in music and being a piano teacher.

Pictured here presenting her with the cheque is Rene Claes, husband of Leona. The presentation was held at the Summerland Seniors Village where he resides.

A concert was held with Kreiger performing for those in attendance. Also performing were the previous winners of the award, Madison Johnson and Sasha Perry-Fagant.
