“The Committee was extremely impressed with the calibre of applications received this year,” Library CEO Amy Caughlin said.
Ms. Marion creates many different works of art across several media and is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Nipissing University.

Caitlyn has also been very active in community events throughout her life, including the Soapbox Derby in Greenbank, the Leaskdale Lions Club Canoe River Run in Pefferlaw and the Sutton SnoFest.
The Kent Farndale Bursary for the Arts provides financial assistance to residents of Scugog Township who wish to pursue a specific field of study in the arts. It is felt that the whole community is enriched, when aspiring or established artists pursue opportunities for further study in their areas of interest.
