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.
Please note that the successful student will be asked to attend a presentation ceremony in Steinbach in January or February. The scholarship may not be awarded if an eligible candidate does not apply. The funds will then be held over for a subsequent year.
