The passing of a champion for youth education

We are saddened to learn oRon and Nancy Clarkf the passing of Ron Clark. With his wife Nancy, Ron made a generous donation in 1989 to establish the Clark Bursary Fund. It was created to assist youth in care and former crown wards in Ontario to achieve their academic and career goals. The Fund provided 20 one-time grants and 25 multi-year grants each year.

A memorial celebration will be held at Grace United Church, Caledonia, on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 11am. In lieu of flowers, donations to Grace United Church, the Juravinski Cancer Centre C/O Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation, or a charity of your choice would be appreciated.
