2011 HSRSA Bursary Recipient

Robbin Wai

The 2011 recipient of the $700 HSR Staff Alumni Bursary is Robbin Wai, from Toronto.

Robbin joined Scouting as a Beaver at age 4, and first went to HSR with his Scout Troop as he was finishing Cubs.  He returned to HSR every summer as a Scout.  Robbin’s Venturer Company did not camp at HSR, but he was reconnected with the camp through a friend who was on staff.  Robbin joined the HSR staff last summer as Trapper and this past summer was a Rifle Instructor.

Robbin wrote in his application something that is sure to resonate with Alumni members.  He says, “I believe that it takes more than one summer to leave a lasting impression on camp; however, it takes less that for camp to leave a lasting impression on you.”

Robbin began his first year studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Windsor in September.

The Bursary is one of the most important activities of the Alumni Association, and is financially supported through fundraising events and donations.  Current HSR staff members pursuing post-secondary education are eligible to apply for the award each year.  Selection criteria include contributions to HSR and Scouting, as well as financial need.  Please support the Bursary by participating in Alumni fundraising events or by making a donation.  Contact Katrina Angel, Bursary Chair at bursary@hsrsa.ca for more information.
