Ty Naslund Memorial Scholarship Fund

Annually, The Bawlf High School Student’s Union (BHSSU) hosts a Turkey Supper Silent Auction with part of its proceeds going toward a worthwhile cause. This year, a tragedy in the Bawlf community has spurred the formation of a scholarship fund. Jeff and Carol Naslund didn’t hesitate starting the fund with the Battle River Community Foundation honoring their 15 year old son, Ty, who died in a dirt bike accident this past October. Ty loved growing up on the farm and his dream was to someday farm alongside his dad and brothers, Ryan and Devin. He was an energetic boy who enjoyed activities like dirt biking, sledding and skiing. His passion was for the out of doors, not the classroom. Jeff and Carol were certain they wanted a lasting legacy that represented who Ty was while doing good for others from the community. So, the Ty Naslund Memorial Scholarship Fund was started and annually a scholarship will go to a Grade 12 student from Bawlf who is studying agriculture or enrolled in an apprenticeship trade program. The students of Bawlf School grieved for Ty and his family and found a way to show their support at their Annual Turkey Supper. This year’s event far exceeded their expectations and the donation of $1700.00 pushed the fund over $20,000.00.
