Pett Family Establishes Two Awards

The Pett family from left: Edie, Sandra, Graham and Bryan Pett; Sean Kennedy, Vice-President of Student and External Relations; Petra Norris-Pett, and Barbara and Shawn Pett. Another sister, Suzanne Smolik, was unable to attend.

Members of the Pett family donated $40,000, which was endowed and matched by the Ontario Trust for Student Support to create scholarships for the Personal Support Worker and Recreational Therapy programs.

“We wanted to do something to honour our parents’ memory and perpetuate their commitment to the community,” said Bryan Pett.

It was their parents’ dedication to community service, as well as the care their mother received from support workers, which led the siblings to decide on two scholarships.  Norm and Jean Pett were  involved extensively in the community in church social outreach, the Niagara Falls Rotary Club and housing projects, such as the Fairhaven senior’s centre.
