At the recent 11th Annual EFC Federation Cup Golf Tournament dinner, Elaine Gerrie of Gerrie Electric introduced two previous EFC scholarship recipients—Alexander Barrie and Nikesh Parsotam—who took to the podium to thank EFC and all its supporters for the Scholarship Program, explaining its importance in enabling them to realize their dreams for careers in the electrical and electronics industries.

Jean Belhumeur of Leviton Canada explained that, now in its 16th year, the Scholarship Program has invested over $500,000 toward the training and education of Canadian post-secondary students, $180,000 of which came from the golf tournament. He also thanked long-term corporate contributors: Affiliate Distributors, Brews Supply Ltd., Canlyte, CEMRA, Eaton, GE Canada, Ontario Electrical League, Osram Sylvania, Radio Advisory Board of Canada, RIM-Research in Motion, Schneider Electric, Standard Products and Wesco Distribution.
