2019 Youth Volunteer Bursary Recipients Selected

Thursday, July 4th, 2019

Cornwall, Ontario – Three graduating high school students will find the next step in their education a little easier thanks to Kawartha Credit Union and Team Cornwall.


The students were each awarded $1,000 in recognition of their volunteer achievements, initiative and care for their community.

“The applications we received this year were very impressive,” said Peter Gault, Chair of Team Cornwall. “It was a difficult decision to make, but we feel that these three students are exceptional young leaders and we are hopeful that they will continue to support and promote Cornwall as they continue their education.”

Fully funded by Kawartha Credit Union, the Youth Volunteer Bursary was developed to encourage leadership, community involvement and cooperation within students. The program honours extraordinary Cornwall students whose volunteer achievements have contributed to the well-being of their community.

A gathering was held at the Kawartha Credit Union on Friday June 28th to recognize the winners of the Team Cornwall Youth Volunteer Bursary. This year’s award winners were:

  • Chloee Litalien – École secondaire catholique La Citadelle
  • Sara Legault – St. Joseph’s Catholic Secondary School
  • Madison Ruffo – Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School

“We want these students to know that they have the support from us and from Cornwall,” said Joanne Montford, Branch Manager of Kawartha Credit Union. “We recognize what they’ve done for the community, and we want to help them take their next steps.”

The Youth Volunteer Bursaries are in addition to the Team Cornwall High School Bursaries. Click here to see the 2019 recipients.
