Bee Maid Honey Limited Awards Two Fiftieth Anniversary Scholarships

Western Canada’s largest honey packer awards Scholarships to Manitoba and Alberta students

Winnipeg, MB  June 11, 2014 -  Bee Maid Honey Limited recently awarded two $1000 scholarships to deserving students.  The Bee Maid Fiftieth Anniversary Scholarship was created in 2004 to commemorate the formation of Bee Maid Honey Limited in 1954.  The annual Scholarship is designed to stimulate the pursuit of excellence by rewarding outstanding achievement by the children and grandchildren of Bee Maid’s co-op members and staff as they enter post-secondary study.

Applicants were selected based on academic achievement in the previous year, evidence of community involvement and a 300-500 word essay on a topic related to agriculture.

The scholarship awards are testament to Bee Maid Honey’s commitment to its members and staff.  The Scholarship committee is pleased to announce that the 2014 recipients are Sydney Paulson and Robyn Termeer.    Sydney, a resident of Nesbitt, Manitoba, is graduating from Boissevain School and is entering University One at the University of Manitoba with hopes of attaining a Bachelor of Nursing Degree.  The subject of her essay was Honey Food Safety and Quality. 

Robyn Termeer, originally from Grand Prairie, Alberta has her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.  She is currently registered at the University of British Columbia in the after degree Education program, as she wants to become a secondary art teacher.  Robyn’s essay “Bee Safe: Ensuring Quality Honey from the Hive to the Home” explored the safety and quality measures taken during the production of honey.
