Richard Garnett Memorial Awards

June 2021

L to R:  Anna Klygina, Alicia Barlow

CFUW Oakville is pleased to announce two new awards to Oakville high school students enrolling in engineering programs.

With generosity and fond memories, the Garnett family established the CFUW Richard Garnett Memorial Awards, in the amount of $5,000.00 each. Richard Garnett’s 55 year career as a mining engineer and geologist spanned five continents and included work on the discover of the Voisey Bay nickel deposit. With his breadth of knowledge, experience, and leadership, combined with core values of fairness, dedication, and hard work, he became a valuable resource to new younger professionals.

In addition to academic scholarship and admittance to an Engineering program, applicants required demonstrated leadership through significant volunteer or community hours.

The inaugural recipients of the Richard Garnett Memorial Awards are Alicia Barlow (Iroquois Ridge High School) and Anna Klygina (Garth Webb Secondary School).

Alicia Barlow’s interest in Math and Science led her to Engineering. As a Link Crew member and a volunteer for Big Brothers Big sisters of Halton and the Homework Club, Alicia strived to help other girls learn the skills to follow their own passions.

Anna Klygina has enrolled in The University of Waterloo’s Biomedical Engineering program. An active volunteer in high school, she co-founded the American Sign Language Club, and organized virtual events as Girl Guide Ranger.

CFUW Oakville is honored to be entrusted with these memorial awards for Engineering-bound young scholars.

May 2020

Enjoy this video from an interview on CHCH TV (Hamilton) about the Suite Melody Care Virtual Performances. Leslie Ashworth was the 2015 winner of the CFUW Oakville Performing Arts Award. She started Sweet Melody Care while she was still a high school student on Oakville. She graduated from The Glenn Gould School of Music in 2019 and she is now working on her Masters in Music at Rice University in Houston, Texas.

Suite Melody Care encourages talented, young musicians to give back to their communities by sharing performances with audiences in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and retirement residences. From Carnegie Hall to Morning Live, Leslie Ashworth makes a return visit to tell us more.
