The Blue Mountain Village Foundation is pleased to announce that The Bob Comish Memorial Bursary will be given to each of 4 graduating students from local high schools who have worked on the Resort property.

Audrey Zink, Derek Jansen, Kale Swinwood-Sky and Kyla Wills will each receive $1,000 from Foundation board members; Bruce Melhuish, Troy Speck and Stacy Manning.
"The Foundation initiated a new selection process for the Bob Comish Memorial Bursary and we are thrilled with the calibre of the successful candidates," says Stacy Manning Vice President of the Foundation. "We chose to support graduating students who have worked on the resort property and are continuing their education as it exemplifies our efforts to support local youth striving to complete their education."
