2013 – Kim Giroux (Wigmore) Memorial Scholarship

Posted on October 25, 2013 by Sarah White

On Saturday October 19th the Kim Giroux Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Aren Lavoie. The scholarship was implemented in 2011 as a way to remember Kim and her contributions to Distributech .

The Scholarship, in the amount of $500, is awarded annually to a student at BCI who has excelled academically and who is pursing post secondary education in computer technology.

On December 6, 2011, we lost a fellow coworker and friend to cancer at the tender age of 31. Kim started at Distributech in 2005 working in our IT department as a Forms Developer. She was instrumental in the development of the Fidelity FRS booklets that started the wave of dynamic publishing at Distributech. As Kim progressed she had aspirations to develop into a Project Manager and was a significant contributor to the launch of the Girl Guides e-store.
