Red Deer & Area Staff

Assoc. Lifestyles Committee Legacy Scholarship

The Red Deer & Area Staff Association Lifestyles Committee was established to promote and support employee engagement by offering eligible employees an opportunity to participate in social and recreational activities in and out of the workplace, and support employee learning by providing eligible employees funding to participate in personal and/or professional learning. This Committee disbanded in 2015 and desired to establish a lasting legacy for Red Deer-based AHS employees through the establishment of a Legacy Scholarship.
