“I’m honoured and pleased to receive this scholarship because I have had such a wonderful and positive work experience at Blue Mountain over the past four years and I will always be grateful for this.” says recipient Myranda Trevisan.

“I am honored to be receiving the Bob Comish Scholarship. Having worked at Blue Mountain for many years, I know the value Bob placed on service, recreation, youth and family enjoyment. I will use this money for purchasing the many supplies I will need as I attend Humber College for a Degree in Jazz Performance, specializing in the tenor saxophone. Tuition, supplies, books and accommodation have appreciated so many cannot afford post-secondary pursuits. This scholarship is greatly appreciated to continue my studies”, says Decklan Funstan.
