Dawn Divola Scholarship

INTRODUCTION

This fund was created by Martin Teplitsky to honour Dawn Divola. Dawn Divola (nee Plozza) was born in 1941 into a farming family in the south eastern corner of Australia. The eldest of four children, she developed the same caring, family and friend oriented traits of her mother. In 1962 she married and left the small country hamlet with her teacher-husband Paul, the beginning of a 44 year (to date), extremely happy, problem-free and rewarding partnership. Dawn worked for 27 years as an administration officer in a school after the three children had begun schooling. As a loving mother, Dawn nurtured extremely well, fostering strong family values and high ethical standards. Her warmth of personality, non-judgmental nature and listening skills resulted in her being a confidante to family and friends with a positive influence.

Dawn Divola - a loving and supportive wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to many, who considered others before self. The founder of this fund thanks the Government of Ontario for its matching contributions.
