May 19, 2022

We are honored to announce Tina Reimer as the Winkler Community Foundation’s 2022 Make it a Reality Award recipient.

The Make it A Reality Award is the most significant scholarship awarded from the Gordon Wiebe Education Fund. It is meant to be a game changing award of $20,000 over 4 years, equipping young people from the Winkler area to reach for their career dreams.

Tina is passionate about her work as an educational assistant. She discovered this passion when she began volunteering in high school during her lunch breaks in the Life Skills class. It was during these lunch breaks, while playing games and building relationships with the students that she discovered the beauty of connections with students with disabilities, and the joy in helping them achieve their goals. Tina has a deep love for her students and her work environment as an EA. She desires to meet the many and varied needs of her students.

Tina has a get-it-done energy that will suit her well in her future endeavors. Leadership and volunteering have given Tina confidence in who she is and the skills she has to give back to our community.

Tina is well suited for the Make it a Reality Award as she pursues her post-secondary pursuits of becoming an educator. Her tenacity and grit, drive and passion, are qualities that will support her well in her studies.

Congratulations to Tina Reimer on receiving the 2022 Make It a Reality Award. We wish you all the best in your studies and future endeavors.
