Pictured here (l to r) is Beverley Leach as she presents the Dr. Rex and Beverley Leach Animal Health Fund Scholarship to Candace Wenzel who recently graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan. Dr. Wenzel has now accepted a position in a mixed animal veterinary practice in Alberta.

The Leach Scholarship is open to all local students who are looking to pursue a career in animal health studies. Applications must be made in writing to the Community Foundation of Swan Valley.

Dr. Leach established a veterinary clinic in Swan River in 1971 and continued to work in the valley until his passing in 2009. Very community-minded, Dr. Leach was also one of the founders of the Community Foundation in the area.
