Jennika Erickson has received a $1,000 bursary from the British Columbia Association of Healthcare Auxiliaries for her compassionate care and comfort, over a period of three years, to the residents of The Lodge on Fourth Ave.
This is the second recognition Erickson has received for her contributions. In 2014 she received a $4,000 bursary from the Ladysmith Healthcare Auxiliary.
“She is a fine example of the contributions made by our youth volunteers today,” said a release from the Auxiliary.
Erickson is a student of the University of Victoria, enrolled in the Bachelor of Science program, working towards a degree in Kinesiology.
