Terry Smith Memorial Bursary
To honour the memory of Terrance (Terry) Bruce Smith, Chair of the Community Savings Credit Union board of directors for twenty years, Community Savings established a Memorial Trust Fund with a $100,000 donation-- the single largest donation ever received by the Credit Union Foundation organization.
Terry had a distinguished service record with the IWA as 1st Vice President of IWA Local 1-357, as President of the local union, and as the National Secretary-Treasurer of the IWA of Canada. In 1991, he received the Joe Morris Labour Community Service Award from the United Way of the Lower Mainland for outstanding efforts to improve community services. He was also a founding director of Pacifica, a member of the Lower Mainland Assessment and Referral Society, and served on New Westminster’s Advisory Planning Commission and the Athletic Commission.
Awards from this trust are available for students attending BC post secondary schools or the Labour College of Canada. All students are invited to apply, but preference will be given to those who are enrolled in trades and apprenticeship, political science, sociology-related fields, social work, community planning, or environmental or co-operative studies.
