The Ross Glen Scholarship was established to celebrate the partnership between RGO Office Products and Lester B. Pearson High School to reward students who are pursuing a career in the skilled trades or post-secondary studies. Mr. Glen is a well-known philanthropist who has been inducted in the Calgary Business Hall of Fame! Mr. Glen earned this prestigious honour because he “exemplifies the true character of Alberta through his unwavering spirit; vision and determination, he has set the benchmark for business excellence as both citizen and mentor in our global community.” (Calgary Herald, April 27, 2016).
This scholarship is intended to assist students who may be in financial need, and who have a passion for the trades or post-secondary studies and thereby carrying on Mr. Glen’s legacy at Lester B. Pearson and in the community.
The first award recipients will be announced during an event to celebrate Lester B. Pearson High Schools 25th anniversary in 2017 – stay tuned for details.
The school opened its doors to the northeast community on September 3, 1991 and is named after Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson, who strongly believed that ignorance creates fear and fear is an enemy of peace. In keeping with this spirit, he helped brokered a peace treaty in the Middle East in the 1950s and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1957. Pearson served as Prime Minister from 1963 to 1968.
