The Kidney Foundation of Canada

2012 Gavin Turley Scholarship Fund Recipient

We are pleased to announce this year’s recipient of the Gavin Turley Scholarship Fund:  Andrea Tracy from Fredericton N.B. Andrea is enrolled in the Bachelor of Social Work program at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia.

A staunch supporter of The Foundation for many years, Andrea donated a kidney to her sister in 2011. In 2012 Andrea became more involved with the Foundation by becoming a member of the organizing committee for the Fredericton Give the Gift of Life Walk event.  To help create awareness of the 2012 Give the Gift of Life Walk, Andrea and her sister were interviewed by The Daily Gleaner newspaper which ran a wonderful story about their transplant and the upcoming Walk.

Andrea has set her sights on a career in the counseling field, in her words: “I am very excited at the prospect of becoming a part of a program that embodies my interests, humanitarian values, volunteer and work experiences and, most importantly, my passion for working towards a common goal of bringing about effective change.”

Andrea is pictured below receiving her scholarship from Tim Fox, former Executive Director of the Atlantic Canada Branch.

Congratulations Andrea!!
