BRANTFORD – The Pink Feather Society would like to congratulate Wonda Jamieson for being the recipient of the first Pink Feather Society’s Bursary. Jamieson was given the $1,000 bursary on Mar. 29, along with a Pink Feather Society pin.
The bursary is given to a survivor of a murdered or missing Indigenous woman who is currently seeking to further their education. The Pink Feather Society was created by students in the Social Service Worker program at Six Nations Polytechnic and students in the Honours Bachelor of Social Work program at Wilfrid Laurier University Brantford. Their mission is to help the children of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) with post-secondary educational support.
“I’d like to thank the Pink Feather Society for their generous contribution towards my education,” said Jamieson.
In the March 16 issue of the Two Row Times a story was published where some of these same Social Work and Social Services students were attributed as Personal Support Worker students. The Two Row Times would like to apologize for the error and clarify that the students involved in the Pink Feather Society are not studying to be Personal Support Workers.
