We are pleased to share that Adam Lauzé, B.A.R.K. volunteer and photographer has been awarded the Madeline Korfman Memorial Scholarship by the Okanagan School of Education!
The scholarship has been endowed through a bequest by Madeline Betty Korfman to honour her love for teaching. Madeline Korfman taught school in southwestern Saskatchewan before relocating to the Okanagan in the mid-1900s. This scholarship is awarded to two teacher candidates who significantly demonstrate a “love for teaching” based on the recommendation of Okanagan School of Education faculty.
Here is what his nominator had to say: “Adam showed a passion for teaching and a genuine care for his students when his mentor had to go on leave and Adam continued with the same classes to support them while the mentor was away. He shows so much enthusiasm and energy. He is dynamic and shows a definite love of teaching.”
In addition to working on his Bachelor of Education, Adam is also a keen B.A.R.K. volunteer, photographer, and videographer. He has been an integral member of the team during the adaptation to a virtual platform during the COVID-19 pandemic.
