Bragagnolo Bursary Fund

The Bragagnolo Bursary Fund provides an annual award to a graduating student from L.V. Rogers or Mt. Sentinel who attended Blewett Elementary school for a minimum of one school year excluding Kindergarten. Applications are accepted by L.V. Rogers and Mt. Sentinel.

The Bursary was established by Blewett School community in 1980 as a tribute to Blewett Elementary School principal, Silvio Bragagnolo. Silvio (or Mr. B. as his students called him) was principal at Blewett from 1966 to 1980 and passed away in 2014.

"I wanted to do something local, such as helping seniors in our hospital here, and the fund I chose was a good fit with what I wanted to do. The donation is also a memorial to my wife; it fulfilled her wishes too."
