Honoring our earth angel, Jesena.
On May 18, 2019, our earth angel, Jesena Andoney, got her wings. Although she is no longer with us in person, we all wanted to find a meaningful and enduring way to have her spirit live on.
Over the last year or so, we have received many thoughtful suggestions about how we can continue to honour her memory. We are very pleased to have landed on a perfect one.
Together with Jesena’s family, we have been working with SAIT and have created a scholarship in Jesena’s honour known as the
Jesena Andoney Memorial Award
Supported by Jesena’s Family and Westcor
The Award has a value of $2,000 per year with a minimum three-year pledged commitment stating May 2021 – with the intention of this Award continuing for many many years to come.
Jesena’s family established the Scholarship Award Criteria Selection which is as follows:
- Female student enrolled in Bachelor of Science Construction Project Management
- Enrolled in second year of program
- Financial need
- Community involvement
- Academic achievement
- Canadian citizen, Alberta resident
SAIT hosted an International Women’s Day (IWD) virtual Conference on March 8th, 2021, and we were honoured that they announced Jesena’s Memorial Award at this Conference. The theme of this year’s IWD Conference was “How to be a good ally” and sharing Jesena’s story was undoubtedly impactful to all!
Jesena, you are missed, but never forgotten!
