Val Dyck Memorial Bursary recipient Cassidy Knorr with Grace Boudreau

Val Dyck was a long time resident of Quesnel and a well-known nurse at G.R. Baker Memorial Hospital and died Dec. 20, 1984.

The Val Dyck Memorial Bursary was originally established in 1985 by the Quesnel Ladies Curling Club, however in 1986 the funds were transferred to the Registered Nurses Association of B.C. – North Cariboo Chapter in Quesnel. In 1995 the accumulated funds were transferred to the Registered Nurses Foundation with the understanding the Quesnel Bursary Committee would continue to be involved with the management of the fund.

A bursary in her name was established to provide financial support for Quesnel residents/students pursuing nursing education with a yearly $1,000 bursary awarded to a student entering or in an approved baccalaureate nursing program.

Specific eligibility including permanent residency in the Quesnel/Hixon/Wells/Barkerville area, must be met.

This year’s recipient, Cassidy Knorr is a third year nursing student at UNBC and was very grateful to receive the Val Dyck Memorial Bursary. Grace Boudreau is the Quesnel representative for the bursary.
