2022 Access Communications Doug Alexander Scholarship Recipients

I volunteer because it has a significant impact on my school and community, no matter how big or small the contribution may be. Everyone should have a fair chance at success, so giving to the less fortunate is especially important to me.

Volunteering is a big part of small town living. Without it, many activities just wouldn't happen. All it takes is that one person's ideas to bring a club or team back to life again!

Jaspyn Campbell, Yorkton

Volunteering throughout my life has given me experiences and knowledge that I would not have been able to enjoy. I have learned a lot from being a volunteer. I became familiar with community organizations and their purposes. I have a greater understanding of volunteering and its importance.

I volunteer because I love to give back to the community that has given so much to me.

I am proud that I am actively involved and have a positive impact on my home town.

The main reason why I volunteer is the joy experience when helping people. I love working with seniors and kids and volunteering my time in a way that grows me as a person and allows me to share my talent of music with others.

Abigayle Kirzinger, Viscount

Growing up in a small community taught me that everyone needs to be involved.

In my community, I continuously give back to the people and organizations that gave so much to me.

Everyone in this community is so welcoming and helpful, it only made sense that as I grew up I gave back to my community and volunteered in as many ways as I could.
