A bursary has been created in memory of an advocate for Summerland youth.

The Ellen Lloyd Memorial Bursary was created by Summerland Secondary School, in cooperation with the municipality.

Lloyd, who died on Jan. 28 at the age of 71, spearheaded initiatives including the Rotary Youth Unity Retreat and the Summerland Asset Development Initiative.

The newly formed bursary will be awarded each year to a Summerland Secondary School graduate who personifies Lloyd’s assets and beliefs. Special consideration will be given to those youths who have had to overcome personal challenges during their teen years.

An account has been set up to fund the annual bursary.

Those individuals or groups wishing to make a contribution may send a cheque made out to the District of Summerland to Linda Bergstrom, Summerland Secondary School, Box 2501, Summerland, V0H 1Z0.

Tax receipts will be issued for donations of more than $20.
