The financial burden of post secondary education will be lighter for six student recipients of bursaries from the Rotary Club of Windsor St. Clair. Students exhibiting outstanding academic achievement, diverse volunteer activities, and financial need were selected as recipients of this bursary. Further consideration was given to those students who demonstrated a commitment to the Rotary International motto of Service above Self.

In choosing the successful recipients, the Principal and Guidance Departments at secondary schools in the Windsor-St. Clair area were invited to select potential candidates from their grade 12 student population. Secondary schools in the club’s catchment area include including Riverside, F.J. Brennan, W.F. Herman, St. Joseph, Ecole Secondarie L’Essor and Tecumseh Vista Academy.

2015 bursary recipients Corey Klinkhamer and Marcus Murensan are both graduates of W.F. Herman Collegiate who will attend the University of Windsor in the fall. Corey will pursue a Bachelor of Applied Mechanical Engineering(Honours) while Marcus has been accepted into the Bachelor of Science (Honours) Program, Chemistry.

Michelle Lutsch, a graduate of Ecole Secondaire d’ L’Essor will attend Queen’s University to earn her Bachelor of Science (Honours) Program. Michelle was previously involved in Rotary through the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards program (RYLA) when she was in Grade 10.
