January 27, 2012 – Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) and its corporate partners, such as GE Canada, recently awarded over $40,000 in scholarship funds to 26 students across Canada. In recognition of her academic achievement, this year’s GE Canada Community Leadership Award was given to Roxanne Olynyk, a fourth-year University of Regina student studying Accounting/Business Administration.
“We are proud to partner with EFC in this initiative that helps young people fulfil their potential and that recognizes and encourages both academic and personal excellence,” said Pat Haughey, general manager, GE Lighting Canada.
The EFC Foundation Scholarship Program was established in 1995 to encourage Canadian students to pursue a career in the electrical, electronics, and telecom industries. To date, EFC has invested almost $600,000 in the post-secondary technical training and education of Canadian students through the Scholarship Program.
