Long-time Mission teacher Claire Clemo passed away in 2017.
Clemo was a beloved teacher, ambassador and mentor who wanted to continue to help the students of Mission.
A teacher at Ecole Mission Central Elementary School for many years, Clemo was dedicated to her profession and wanted to ensure students had the opportunity to attend post-secondary school in the education or nursing fields.
When she retired, she decided to set up the Esther Claire Kathleen Clemo Scholarship Fund with the Mission Community Foundation.
Her fund began with a donation of $10,000 and she contributed annually to ensure a $1,000 scholarship would be awarded each year to a student studying education or nursing.
As part of her will, Clemo left a sizable donation to that scholarship.
The Mission Community Foundation will endeavour to fulfill Clemo’s wishes and continue to provide more scholarship opportunities in her name.
Anyone wishing to contribute to this fund or to start their own legacy is asked to contact the foundation’s executive director, Angie, at 604-826-5322 or visit the official website at:
