The Harold Hewitt Scholarship (HHS) was established by the Windsor Family Credit Union in 2001 as a yearly contribution to the post-secondary
education of youth in our community.

Since that time, a total of $45,750 has been presented under the scholarship. This year, W.F.C.U. continued the tradition by presenting a total of $5,000 to 16 youth through the HHS program, including seven from the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board.

Children enrolled in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12, were invited to write, in no more than 100 words, “What do you like best about living in Windsor and Essex County and why?”  Select submissions from each age category were chosen and the authors named recipients of WFCU’s 2011 Harold Hewitt Scholarship.

This special scholarship was inspired by the late Harold Hewitt, WFCU’s long term Director on the Board whose dedication to the community was an integral part of the Credit Union.
