News Release: AYC Awards Scholarships

(Whitehorse) – AYC President Diana Rogerson is pleased to announce the recipients of the annual Association of Yukon Communities’ Scholarships for Municipal Studies.

Applications are accepted each fall from Yukoners who are students of post-secondary institutions or who are municipal employees or elected officials of local governments who are taking a course of studies toward a career in municipal government and management. As Rogerson said, “Providing a financial incentive to help with the costs of education will always find its way back to the communities,” noting that, “our municipalities are strong employers and we encourage individuals to think of working in a local government environment.”

 This year’s recipients of the $500 award are Ms. Susan Smith of Haines Junction, who is studying towards a Certificate of Community Engagement, Leadership and Development through Ryerson University, and Ms. Karen Furlong of Whitehorse who is enrolled in the MBA Community Economic Development program at Cape Breton University.

 President Rogerson added, “Congratulations to our two recipients; we wish them both the best in their studies and future career choices.”

 AYC has awarded the two scholarships since 2008.
