The Northwestern Ontario Tourism Association (NWOTA) is pleased to announce that Timo Brielmann, a 2008 graduate of the Rainy River High School, is the recipient of the organization’s third memorial bursary.
Brielmann, the son of Amos and Heidi Brielmann, will be studying Environmental Science at the University of Guelph beginning this fall.
His plan for the future is to become an environmental consultant.
NWOTA established the bursary in 2005 in memory of individuals who have been outstanding advocates of the tourism industry. It is open to graduating high school students from Fort Frances, Rainy River, and Atikokan, as well as those from Beaver Brae and St. Thomas Aquinas in the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board.
To be eligible, students must enrol in courses related to tourism or natural resources at an approved Canadian university.
Brielmann will receive $500, to be paid upon submission of proof of registration.
