pat porter'S LEGACY


$1,000 scholarship for a minimum of the next five years

Pat Porter Memorial
Nursing Scholarship

Who was Pat Porter?
1939 - 2012

One of the very first questions that get asked when people ask about our building is "What is a Pat Porter?" It's not actually a what, but a whom. Pat (Mary Patricia) Porter was a Registered Nurse who spent her twenty-five year working life being a tireless advocate for seniors.

A nursing scholarship has been formed in her memory. Through generous donations from friends, family and community, the Pat Porter Active Living Centre is able to offer a $1,000 scholarship for a minimum of the next five years.

Scholarships will be awarded in January each year with a formal presentation at the Pat Porter Active Living Centre Annual Fundraising Banquet.
