    Our employee, Maya, died in a plane crash on August 17th, 2010.

    He had been visiting his brother in Kelowna and was being brought back to Victoria by his brother in his plane, on the Tuesday evening so he could work on Wednesday morning.  Their plane left Penticton at 5:10, never to show up in Victoria.

    He was a sweet, respectful, kind fellow of 21 that had a soft, gentle, sensitive side to him.  He was a hard worker always wanting to know more about the way things worked, had a great sense of humour and loved his family and was very proud of his brothers.  He was an adventurer and lover of sports and lived a full life.  He was going to be going back to Camosun College in September.

    We have started a Memorial Bursary in Maya’s name at Camosun College in the Mechanical Engineering Bridge program.  He would have been going into his second year of the program, to follow his dreams and ambitions, with plans to head off to UBC to work on his full degree in Mechanical Engineering.

    We thought this would be a really fitting way to honour his legacy, and to give a hand to other students wanting to do the same.  Everyone that receives the Maya Bursary will know it’s ‘from him’, so it will make people wonder who he was and how he is impacting their life.

    You can go directly to their secure web page and donate online!!  Just check off ‘scholarships & bursaries’ and specify “Maya Tello-Wrigley“.
