A new post-secondary scholarship will provide youth from Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON) with $1,500 to support their educational journey.
The Greg Nadjiwon Health & Wellness Scholarship will be awarded annually to one deserving student pursuing a career in the field of health and wellness and who promotes a healthy lifestyle.
“Greg Nadjiwon is passionate about creating opportunities for his community and supporting youth in their academic pursuits,” said Chief Veronica Smith, of the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation. “This scholarship is a tribute to his commitment and many years of public service, his development of youth in the SON community, and his leadership in supporting the isotope partnership between the Saugeen Ojibway Nation and Bruce Power.”
Nadjiwon served as Chief of the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation from 2015 to 2021. In 2019, Bruce Power and the SON forged an innovative partnership to jointly market new medical isotopes in support of the global fight against cancer, while also working together to create new economic opportunities within the SON territory.
“Bruce Power is honoured to provide educational scholarships to local students to help build a pipeline of diverse talent that will benefit the entire region and province,” said Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power’s President and CEO. “This scholarship recognizes Greg Nadjiwon’s important contributions to our isotope partnership with SON that will provide a global supply of medical isotopes to doctors and researchers in the fight against cancer.”
