2013 Gavin Turley Scholarship Fund Recipient

We are pleased to announce this year’s recipient of the Gavin Turley Scholarship Fund:  Jillian Antworth from Kingsclear,  N.B. Jillian is enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts program, majoring in Sociology, at Saint Thomas University in Fredericton..

Jillian has been a volunteer for The Foundation for many years; this past summer she completed an assignment as a summer student in our Fredericton Office. No stranger to kidney disease, Jillian’s mother undergoes dialysis treatment three times per week. This has sparked Jillian’s enthusiasm of and dedication to organ donation. Jillian wants to use her education to better her understanding of the role that society plays in understanding disease and its implications, she is confident that this will allow her to better spread the word about the importance of organ donation.

Jillian is pictured below receiving her scholarship from Tracy Durkee-Jones, Executive Director of the Atlantic Canada Branch.
