As they have done in past years, the Stittsville Legion, Branch 618 and the Stittsville Friendship Club came together to present bursaries to local high school students on the evening of July 12, 2022. The Legion presented 16 bursaries for a total of $16,000 and the Stittsville Friendship Club issued two $1,000 bursaries. Eighteen students will be able to apply this money to their further education thanks to the generosity of these two local organizations.

As part of the Legion’s commitment to youth, Veterans and their families, Legion branches grant bursaries through their Poppy Trust Fund to the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Veterans who need financial assistance to pursue a post-secondary education to further their educational goals. Following through on that commitment, the Stittsville Legion presented the 16 bursaries to assist local students in their post-secondary education – Hayley Argue, Adam Basinger, Kathryn Basinger, Andrew Currie Arana, Kaylie Forbes, Olivia Green, Sophie Green, Cayden Horne, Ryan Kernaghan, Cole Laframboise, Alyssa Latimer-D’Aoust, Tegan Llewellyn, Joshua Mannoly, Anthony Moulton, Jade Moulton, Jillian Shipley.
