Guenther Wetzel Trades Bursary
The late Guenther Wetzel believed in the real value of tradespeople – electricians, plumbers, welders, carpenters, masons, and all those other skilled workers without whom nothing would get built and nothing would function. To honour Guenther’s appreciation for these folk, and to encourage young people to pursue a career in a trade, his wife Donna Havery Wetzel has established the Guenther Wetzel Trades Bursary through The County Foundation. A single bursary of approximately $1,500 will be awarded to the successful applicant. Applicants will have applied and been accepted at a post-secondary institute offering formal instruction in a trade. The bursary will be paid directly to the post-secondary institute, on behalf of the student, and can be used for tuition or other costs and fees levied by the Institute.
