Vegreville Fire Department Club Awards Monetary Scholarship

Author: Town Of Vegreville Posted on: Aug 28, 2019

As a part of giving back to our community, the Vegreville Fire Department Club voted to award a monetary scholarship to a local student for post-secondary studies.

The Club was very pleased to be able to awards it’s first ever scholarship to Katherine Geibelhaus to continue her education in the sciences. Sr. FF Alan Robert states, “There were many deserving applications received, however, Katherine stood out having worked at the town’s Aquatic and Fitness center. We thank all the applicants and we wish them all well as they are all very deserving of a prosperous future.  We look forward to awarding the scholarship again next year to a deserving individual with goals to provide professional services in the town of Vegreville.”

Many young citizens of Vegreville have been members of the Vegreville Fire Department through the Junior Firefighter program and many have gone onto full-time careers in Fire/Police or EMS. The club decided that awarding a scholarship was a great way to reflect the importance of our youth in the community. The monies used for the scholarship were raised from quarterly donations from each firefighter.
