Sister Margaret Hughes Scholarship

New Scholarship in the fall of 2022


We introduced a new scholarship in the Fall of 2022 that was made possible by family and friends of Sister Margaret Hughes, in recognition of her many years with Rossbrook House.

Sister Margaret helped to create Wi Wabigooni, the elementary school program hosted by Rossbrook House in partnership with Winnipeg School Division, where she taught for many years until her retirement in 2015.

She was also instrumental in the implementation of the annual Rossbrook House Pow Wow. After her retirement, Sister Margaret volunteered in our Learning Always program and continued to help with the Pow Wow until she moved to Saskatchewan in 2019.

Sister Margaret received the Order of Canada in 2022. Read more here.

We are happy to carry on her legacy and award one student with the Sister Margaret Hughes scholarship.
