The Canadian Safe Schools Network Announces the Robert Pierre Tomas Scholarship Fund
By Allan Peterkin
It’s hard to believe that today (April 1) is the first anniversary of Robert Pierre Tomas’ death. He was a dedicated activist and fundraiser and such a vibrant, loving and generous presence.
It seems a fitting tribute to launch a scholarship for post-secondary study/training in his honour. The award will be given to a gay or lesbian student who is a new Canadian (just as Robert was when he arrived here in 1986).
The scholarship will be offered by the Canadian Safe School Network – you can learn more and donate here.
