September 13, 2018 – The Alberta Electrical Association (AEA) has announced the winners of its 2018 scholarships.
The organization raises funds for local scholarships and school-managed bursaries across the province, which all members are eligible to receive.
“Our committee that reviews all the applicants from around the province were very impressed this year,” says Tara Ternes, AEA’s executive director. “In fact, they said it was the hardest year by far. The young kids are overachieving at home, at work and in school and finding time to volunteer, as well.”

– $1,500 to Cora Bunston at University of Calgary (U of C); member company: Guillevin.
– $1,500 to Sithembisiwe Ngope at Norquest College; member company: Schneider Electric.
– $1,500 to Veronica Alba at University of Alberta (U of A); member company: ESS-LSS Life Safety Sys.
– $1,500 to Peter Brockmann at U of A; member company: Schneider Electric.
