Nominations for Lou Gillette Scheffler Mentorship Award

In July 2016, the BCTRA Board of Directors initiated the esteemed Lou Gillette Scheffler Mentorship Award to recognize a BCTRA member who has demonstrated outstanding mentorship as a manager or supervisor in the field of Therapeutic Recreation.  The inception of the award is based upon a letter that was submitted by a BCTRA member requesting that an annual mentorship award be presented in honour of Lou Gillette Scheffler, a supervisor and mentor who had an incredible impact on students, professionals, and in the field of Therapeutic Recreation. This award is intended to acknowledge members who:

  • Guide and empower students and/or professionals to meet and exceed set goals.
  • Nurture students and/or professionals to reach their truest potential.
  • Cultivate a cohesive, supportive, and dynamic team.
  • Are forward thinking both as a manager/supervisor and in the field of Therapeutic Recreation.

Nominations should include: a summary of the contributions this individual has made to the field and a letter indicating why this person should be granted the award. Nomination deadline is October 12th, 2018.
