Jean Myron 2.jpeg

When Woodward Elementary School opened in 1961 the four room school had Jean Myron as Head Teacher. There is also a street in Richmond, Myron Court, named to honour her brother, Ian, who was killed in World War II.

His tragic story is captured in this newspaper story from November 2014. It is a great read!

Upon Jean’s passing, the RRTA Scholarship Trust Fund was the recipient of a large financial bequest from her estate to provide Grade 12 scholarships to all 10 secondary schools in Richmond.

We currently present 2 – $2000 scholarships at each school – a huge legacy from Jean Myron.

The Louise Campbell Memorial Scholarship

Louise Campbell was a student in Richmond and graduated from Steveston Secondary School in 1965. Louise loved teaching and she completed both her both elementary and secondary teacher training and later taught in Vancouver and Richmond.

In 2001, as a memorial to her daughter, Ruth Campbell, a retired Richmond teacher and member of the RRTA, made a large donation to the Scholarship Fund.

The money is used to make an annual award of $1000 to a deserving Steveston Secondary School graduate
