    Graduating from High School in 2015? Apply for CCRA’s William A. Dempsey Scholarship

    The William A. Dempsey Scholarship is being offered in recognition of the work and activities of Mr. William Dempsey, a long-time resident of Centennial community and an active, caring, and giving member in both his professional and personal life.

    Mr. Dempsey was the first president and a founding member of the Centennial Community Recreation Association, established in 1949. His many contributions to this community included being a driving force behind the creation of Adams Park, the preservation of the Centennial Rouge United Church, starting Heritage Day and the annual Christmas Carol concert at St Dunstan’s Church. He worked to have Highland Creek preserved as a post office and he ensured the preservation of the Wesleyan Cemetery in Highland Creek.

    CCRA offers this scholarship to a student who will be continuing to post-secondary education in accordance with our mission: “...to further and promote the welfare of the residents of the area and its environs and to establish co-operation good will and mutual respect among the residents”.
