Announcing a new scholarship for Rehoboth Christian School students

Jack Westerink has always been an enthusiastic advocate for Christian Education – from a child’s earliest years and on into adult life.  As a Principal and Elder, Jack has also recognized that post-secondary Christian Education equips a person with a more broadly applied Christian world view that is particularly helpful for Christian educators.

After consulting with Jack and his family, we are introducing The Jack Westerink Scholarship for Christian Studies. The scholarship is being established as a tribute to Jack’s outstanding service to Rehoboth Christian School and to assist and motivate students to choose a Christian degree granting institution for their post-secondary years.  
Students who qualify for the Jack Westerink Scholarship for Christian Studies will receive $2500 per year of study at a qualifying institution.

Qualifying Criteria:

·   The student must have attended RCS for a minimum of his/her last 2 years (4 semesters)
·   The student has been accepted at a Canadian Christian institution in a 4 year undergraduate or a 5 year B. Ed. Program (the institution must offer a B. Ed degree)
·   The student has the highest overall average in the top six 4U or 4M courses with an overall average mark of at least 75%
·   The student must show proof of full time enrollment and successful completion of each year to receive subsequent annual scholarships

The qualifying student will receive $2500 per year, for up to 4 years for an undergraduate degree and 5 years for a B. Ed degree.

To fund this scholarship, we are asking interested people to support this scholarship by committing funds either as a lump sum or over a number of years.  If you (or your business) are interested in donating to this fund, please call Bill Droogendyk at 519.647.2855 for further details.
