A scholarship in the name of late community leader Harry Lehotsky was awarded on Monday.
Kevin Settee, 23, was awarded the 2014 Lehotsky Scholarship by Mayor Sam Katz for his contribution to Winnipeg’s West End community.
“Kevin Settee grew up in the West End, and has been working to improve his community by being a role model for youth, volunteering, and being a community organizer, all while battling health issues and working towards his degree at the University of Winnipeg,” Katz said. “His work and attitude are inspirational and truly embody the spirit of the award. I am proud to present Kevin with the 2014 Lehotsky Scholarship.”
The $5,000 scholarship is awarded annually to one or more eligible students who have displayed an exceptional effort as an advocate for the health and safety of people in the Winnipeg’s West End through community leadership or volunteerism.
