Mr. Jim Ainsley, President of Canwest Publishers Ltd. is pleased to announce that Canwest Publishers Trust has made a donation of $25,000.00 to Trinity Western University for the establishment of a scholarship fund.

“The fund will be established in the name of the Langley Times to recognize the significant role the Times has had in the establishment of this fund,” says Ainsley.

Tanis Culley, Publisher of the Langley Times said she is delighted with this announcement and that this further reflects the Times commitment to the community.

“This contribution to Trinity Western University could not be possible without the tremendous support of the readers and advertisers of the Times over the years,” says Culley.

Inga Warnock, Director of Planned Giving at TWU, is pleased with the Times’ contribution.

“It’s incredible to see that kind of support for the university and for the community,” she says. “Our future depends on articulate, positive, goal oriented students with a vision to make a difference in the world. This incredible legacy gift will not only impact this generation of students, but many generations to come as the endowment grows. We’re so grateful to Canwest and the Langley Times for their commitment and investment in our future leaders.”

Both Warnock and Culley hope that other businesses will follow Canwest’s lead by giving back to their community. Warnock notes, “This community-based scholarship is one way of ensuring high calibre-students will receive the award.”

Based on academic achievement, the endowed scholarship will be given to two Canadian students each year: one in Communications and one in Human Kinetics.

The Langley Times is part of the Metrovalley Newspaper Group, which operates community newspapers in the Lower Mainland area of British Columbia. The group includes the Surrey/North Delta Leader, Abbotsford News, Tri-City News and North Shore Outlook among its seventeen newspapers.
