2020 WVMEA SCHOLARSHIPS  (posted September 10, 2020)

The Academic Scholarship Committee met in mid-August and the decision was taken, for this year only, to award 3 scholarships of $2,000 each as there were no applicants for either the Trades or Visual Arts Scholarships.  The winners of this year’s Academic Scholarships are Caden Hewlett, Leiana Hoshyari and Irene Kim.  An Academic Scholarship Notice has been emailed today to members whose personal email address we have on file.  Congratulations to Caden, Leiana and Irene and also many thanks to all the excellent candidates who applied this year.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING  (posted September 8, 2020)

Our Annual General meeting was held on September 2, 2020 at 5 pm via Zoom and we had a great turnout!  We managed to work our way through the business at hand and we even managed to have a Prize Draw at the end of the meeting.  The winners of our $100 Door Prizes were Elisabeth Thoma and Laura Marko (both School District members).   Our next General Membership meeting will be held on November 3, 2020 and it is more than likely this will also be a Zoom meeting.  If you have any feedback on our first meeting then let us know.
