Although there was no conference held in 2021 due to COVID 19 restrictions, we were able to award the Thomas Hart Memorial Scholarship to the following recipients: Chase Howell, Darian Lourenco, Natasha Patrick, Devon Hart, and Abigail Furutani.
We deeply regret not being able to hold an in-person conference, but the COVID 19 pandemic restrictions will not allow for a gathering. We have gone ahead with our scholarship program anyway! Our successful candidates for the Thomas Hart Memorial Scholarship this year are: Chase Howell, Kira Lourenco and Shay-Lee Jackson.
Our deepest appreciation to Canadian artist Kal Barteski for modifying our logo! Kal created the original Mamingwey Burn Survivor Society logo back in 2003. As we are now the Mamingwey Burn Society Inc., Kal has graciously made the changes for us. Thanks so much Kal!
