  • Ladysmith Ambassador Program

A non-profit organization that works to foster self-esteem, leadership, public speaking, and community spirit in young men and women within our community. The program provides an opportunity for healthy development of our youth through a formal eight week Toastmasters course, formal speech and talent night, along with many volunteer activities and public appearances. The skills and life-changing activities offered through this program provide a solid and positive foundation for youth as they enter adulthood.

  • Ladysmith & District Credit Union Bursary Program

Ladysmith & District Credit Union, (LDCU), presented a total of five bursaries to students who graduated from Ladysmith Secondary School this past June. These bursaries totaled $13,000 including the $5,000 bursary in memory of John Ulinder who was one of the founding members of LDCU, and attended every board meeting for over 50 years. The other bursaries include two $3,000 bursaries, one in memory of Helma Kotilla, who was the first female President of a Credit Union Board of Directors in BC, and Jack MacDonald, a long-time director and President of the Board. The remaining two bursaries are $1,000 each and are separated into academic and vocational pursuits. We wish all the graduates of Ladysmith Secondary School the best as they pursue their dreams after graduation.
