A. Bernard & Mary B. Dixon Memorial Scholarship
The A. Bernard & Mary. B. Dixon Memorial Scholarship was created to memorialize the lives and careers of Arthur Bernard (Bun) Dixon and his wife Mary Barbara (nee Gamble, Beckwith) Dixon, who lived in the Gaetz valley and Delburne districts for many years. Both Bun and Mary were involved in community school affairs. Bun being a member of the Gaetz Valley and Delburne School Boards during the 1930’s and 1940’s, and Mary having taught at the Woodlake School during the 1930’s and the Delburne School during the 1940’s and early 1950’s.
For this reason, student applications from the Delburne and Delburne West areas will generally be given priority over other possible applicants. Applicants should realize that the acceptance process will be competitive, so the greater amount of information provided in a concise manner, the better.
