TIVERTON, ON – August 11, 2015 – One-hundred post-secondary school students have received a $500 boost for their education from Bruce Power.
Recipients of the annual Bruce Power Scholarship were recognized at a breakfast on Tuesday, Aug. 11, at the Bruce Power Visitors’ Centre. Duncan Hawthorne, Bruce Power’s President and CEO, presented those in attendance with their certificates and $500 during the event.
“Bruce Power is proud to play a role in the post-secondary education of these impressive students from Bruce, Grey and Huron counties,” Hawthorne said. “Our Scholarship Committee had a very difficult job of picking only 100 winners from an unbelievable crop of over 300 applicants.”
The selection committee was comprised of 10 Bruce Power employees from a variety of departments and levels. The applications were reviewed with system-generated reference numbers to remove any name, location or other potential biases, and all personal information was removed to ensure anonymity.
The Bruce Power Summer Bus Tours officially kicked off a noon today. Heather Poechman, Development Student, Community Relations provided the first guided tour on-site to a packed bus.
Tours run every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday throughout July and August with three tours daily at 12, 1 and 2 p.m. The one-hour bus tour provides a unique opportunity to see both Bruce A and B generating stations, the historical Douglas Point generating station, Corporate Support Centre along with many other sight-seeing attractions.
