Established in memory of Archibald W. Campbell, Tony Stranak and Mary Jo Arnold, these scholarships have been made available through donations to trust funds managed by the St. Clair Region Conservation Foundation.

“These generous donations allow our organization to support future conservationists in the St. Clair Region as they pursue their post-secondary education,” stated Brian McDougall, General Manager of the St. Clair Region Conservation Authority, in a media release.

“We hope these scholarships will encourage young people to take an active role in the environmental issues that impact our society today and in the future.”
