This memorial award has been set up in memory of Linda Paterson
“Effort, effort, effort” was one of Linda’s favorite mottos. She truly believed that whatever it is you choose to do, put your heart into it, and do it right the first time. Linda was an excellent student in her younger years, and when she chose to return to school as an adult and complete her Care Aide course, she tackled it with the same zest. Linda was known for her bubbly nature, caring ways and warm smile. She took pride in her work, and was well respected by her colleagues and residents alike. She would take absolute delight in knowing this award will go to a hardworking, individual pursuing a post-secondary education in the healthcare field.
Remember her motto, “Effort, effort, effort. Report cards will be here before you know it."
The Linda Paterson Memorial Award will be given out starting in the 2018-2019 Fall Semester. This Award will be in the amount of $500.00 and is available to one student who meets the criteria below.
The Terrace Make Children First Initiative has donated $10,000 in bursaries to students enrolled in the Post-Basic Early Childhood Education program at Coast Mountain College.

When the Post-Basic ECE program is not available, the Basic ECE program will be considered an eligible program.
Personally having overcome obstacles and pursuing her education at CMTN, Mary Lou Beskowine was a strong woman, a feminist and a champion of those in need. She would be delighted and so proud to see her legacy being carried on.
