Sarah Beth Therien was a long-time employee of the Canada Safety Council and a passionate advocate for child and traffic safety. She made medical history in 2006 as the first Canadian organ donor after cardiac death. Her medical legacy has gone on to save hundreds of lives so far, a number that continues to grow week after week.
About the scholarship:
The Sarah Beth Therien Memorial Scholarship is intended to honour Sarah’s memory, and to raise the profile of safety in the minds of young Canadians. Its purpose also extends to increasing awareness among young Canadians of the resources and services the CSC provides.
The goal is to grant a $2,500 scholarship every year for a post-secondary student who has undertaken an initiative with demonstrated results to improve safety in their community or at home, school, or work.
