The Jack Douglas Memorial Scholarship Award
John (Jack) David Douglas was a cherished member of the Kiwanis Club of Toronto who passed away in 2012 after 25 years of service as a Kiwanian. He was a past Toronto Kiwanis Board Member and President of The Toronto Kiwanis Foundation for several terms.
He was a strong supporter of helping young people achieve their goals with higher education and was a member of the Kiwanis Foundation Scholarship Committee for several years. He will be remembered for his invaluable contributions to The Kiwanis Foundation, The Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club renovation project, and for the many friends who still miss his big smile and sense of humour.
The Club created the scholarship in his memory to support the legacy he left.
