Muskoka Community Foundation Awards $20,000 from the South and Central Almaguin Education Fund
The Muskoka Community Foundation is pleased to announce this year’s grant recipients of the South and Central Almaguin Education Fund. The South and Central Almaguin Education Fund was established at Muskoka Community Foundation in June 2017 to encourage highs school graduates in the South and Central Almaguin Region to pursue post-secondary education.
Grants were awarded to six students who are pursuing a post-secondary education at colleges and universities across Ontario.
This year’s recipients are Madison Rainey, Erika Dunn, Soren Bolduc and Dragon St. Onge from Almaguin Highlands Secondary School and Andrew Johnston and Josie Woodman from Huntsville High School.
Lynn DeCaro, Executive Director of the Muskoka Community Foundation, noted the community partners who made this year’s grants possible. “We want to say a special thank you to the staff at both schools and the Municipality of Magnetawan for providing support to help make the students’ first year of post-secondary education a successful endeavor.”

DeCaro encouraged students to consider applying for the next round of granting. “This is an annual grant and students who live in the South and Central Almaguin region, who are graduating from Almaguin Highlands Secondary School or high schools in Muskoka in 2020, should check with the student services departments at their school to learn more about applying for a grant from this fund.”
