Rosie Jones and Joan Cook Memorial Bursary

This bursary was established in 1996 by the Victoria Black People’s Society (through the work of Jesse Dillard, the then President of the Society) to provide financial assistance for students at Camosun with a heritage background. The Bursary, administered through the Camosun College Foundation, was named to honour:

Rosie Jones, a young woman who was adopted as an infant from Jamaica. Rosie had an incredible disposition and is remembered lovingly as a vibrant young lady who lived life to the fullest, participating in sports, academics, her church and choir.

Joan Cook, a much admired teacher at Glenlyon Norfolk School with great loyalty to her students.  She possessed an all-engaging smile and participated in many sports activities.

Students should contact Student Services for Financial Aid, Awards and Information about this Bursary.

If you are interested in supporting this important Bursary, your gift can be accepted securely online at www.camosun.ca/foundation or phone 250.370.4233 or mail your cheque to:  
Camosun College Foundation, 4461 Interurban Road/ Victoria, B.C V9E 2C1
