KCAT alumni awards two $1,000 scholarships
Farmers Forum staff
OTTAWA — The sons of two Eastern Ontario farm families picked up $1,000 scholarships from the Kemptville College Alumni Association earlier this year.
Dylan Wallace of Kemptville and Arden McWilliams of Navan were selected from a group of eight applicants for the scholarship. Two are awarded annually.
Wallace, who recently completed the two-year Business Agriculture program at the Perth campus of Algonquin College, hopes to take over his family’s cash-crop and logging operation.
McWilliams, entering his third year of the Farm Management and Technology program at MacDonald College in Quebec, plans a career as an agronomist while helping on his family’s cash-crop operation. He also enjoys the farm’s Belgian draft horses.
Both Wallace and McWilliams have family connections to the former Kemtpville College. Their fathers, Jonathan Wallace and John McWilliams, respectively graduated in 1992 and 1987.
Kemptville College Alumni Association looks forward to its annual reunion on Aug. 19, 2023, at Lombardy Fairgrounds. Honour years are 3 and 8 and all years are welcome to attend. Download the registration form at www.kcalumni.ca or email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Money raised by the reunion auction goes towards the scholarship fund.
