Lynne Currie spent much of her extensive 45-year nursing career working throughout the Sea to Sky corridor. Her career took her from acute care nursing in Squamish General Hospital to home and community care serving Whistler, Pemberton, Mt Currie and beyond. Lynne was an extraordinary caregiver, educator, co-worker, leader and friend. Her family always remained her driving force and the mark she left on this world will never be forgotten.
The Lynne Currie Legacy Bursary is open to students from the Pemberton and District area. The Pemberton and District Health Care Foundation is proud to present a $2,000 bursary awarded annually to assist a student pursuing a career in health care. Should a student withdraw or transfer out of program in the same year, an equal portion of the refund would revert back to the Pemberton and District Health Care Foundation.
Applications will be accepted from March 15th to May 15th each year and bursary will be awarded June 15th. The successful applicant will have the amount directly paid to the Canadian institution of the enrolled program.
The Pemberton & District Health Care Foundation (PDHCF) is a non-profit agency that advocates for and financially assists in the provision of health care services, facilities and equipment to benefit the community in which it serves.
