Betty Finch worked for Edmonton Public Schools for three decades, mainly as a specialist who focused on students with learning disabilities. When she retired in 1987, her friends and family, along with the Learning Disabilities of Alberta (Edmonton Chapter) established this scholarship to recognize her commitment to education. Betty passed away on August 14, 2002, at the age of 82. Through an endowment in her will, Betty has ensured her legacy of learning will live on. Her funds will allow students with learning disabilities to access this scholarship for years to come.
