Theresa Allore Memorial Scholarship

T-06

On September 24th, 2008, The family of Theresa Allore and Champlain Regional College announced the launching of the Theresa Allore Memorial Fund.

Theresa Allore was a promising student at the Champlain Lennoxville Campus in Quebec’s Eastern Townships. At the time of her death, she was studying the behavioral sciences, and had expressed an interest in the field of criminology. Theresa loved adventure, which lead to her interest in cycling, skydiving, and hiking.  She loved being outdoors, and particularly enjoyed hiking the local trails of Mount Orford.  Her special qualities included being a good friend, who did not judge others, but rather chose to draw encouragement and inspiration from everyone and everything she encountered.

Based on these qualities inspired by Theresa, the hope is to establish a scholarship that will take into consideration the student as a “total person”, including academic achievement, active participation in campus life, desire to serve others, and financial need.  Beyond these qualities, benefactors will have the opportunity to contribute to the development of specific criteria that will open this scholarship to a wide spectrum of students, providing support to both traditional and non-traditional applicants.

While we have struggled for many years with the tragic loss of a young life filled with a spirit of adventure, it has come the time to celebrate her life so that Theresa may inspire others.  There is no doubt in the hearts of those who had the privilege to share in her all too short life that this is exactly how Theresa would want to be remembered.

We are presently seeking benefactors that wish to contribute to an endowment scholarship in her memory. With your help, we hope to be able to offer the first scholarship for the 2008- 2009 academic year. We ask that you consider donating to the Theresa Allore Memorial Fund, so that we can continue to celebrate her life by encouraging a worthy student.

Contributions can be made to one of two foundations in the United States and Canada. When you make a gift you will receive the full tax advantages available by law for gifts to public charities in the United States and Canada.
