Nancy Williams Memorial Scholarship

Nancy Williams Scholarship

Nancy was a Culinary Nutrition Expert and a vibrant and well loved member of our community since 2014. Up until her health began to challenge her in more serious ways just before Christmas of 2019, she was an active cheerleader and source of support in our student and alumni group. She had a warmth that radiated and was one of those people that stayed in your heart. She loved live music shows and most of all, being in her kitchen creating.

Nancy passed away in August 2020 and she is deeply missed. This scholarship honours her memory, and gives back to those who need it – something Nancy was very passionate about throughout her lifetime.
