Essex-Windsor EMS recruit Aaron Mackenzie is the 2021 recipient of the Bill Macri Memorial Scholarship.

The $1,000 scholarship was presented by Jeanie Macri in memory of her husband, an Essex-Windsor EMS paramedic who began his career in 1981 and died in 2013 after battling cancer.

The scholarship is given annually to a paramedic student at St. Clair College with the purpose to provide financial support to a paramedic in training who shows the same passion for service excellence, continuous learning and development of self as Bill Macri.

Applicants must write an essay about themselves when they apply and intend to pursue employment as a paramedic.

The first scholarship was awarded in 2014.
