June 29, 2020—Congratulations to Amy Hookimaw, a student at Trenton High School who is one of five recipients of the Public Property Assessment Network Scholarship through the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association.
The $1,000 scholarship is being awarded to one recipient in each of OPSBA’s five regions, for three school years: 2019-2020, 2020-2021 and 2021-2022.
Scholarship recipients are students of strong character, leadership skills and potential, who care deeply about their communities and furthering their own learning.
More information about this scholarship
The funds were established from an organization with a core purpose to determine values for properties, which is the foundation for our property tax system in Ontario. This scholarship is to provide financial assistance to students who are pursuing an apprenticeship in the trades, more particularly the building trades, such as HVAC, carpenter, plumber or other property building trade.
Interested students should write a brief statement on why they are pursuing the building trades as an area of study, how the funds would assist them in pursuing this career and how they intend to give back to the community.
