WAMBO Youth Ambassadors Named

A pair of recent high school graduates are the winners of this year’s Wallaceburg Antique Motor and Boat Outing (WAMBO) Youth Ambassador Program.

On Wednesday, the directors of WAMBO announced that the 2017/2018 academic year WAMBO Youth Ambassadors are Wallaceburg District Secondary School Grade 12 graduates Miria Pelletier and Brock Yazbec.

Both Pelletier and Yazbec will each receive $1,500 towards their post-secondary educational costs.

Candidates were required to submit an essay describing the benefits of volunteering in the community to both the citizens of Wallaceburg and themselves.

The applications and essays were reviewed by an independent selection committee and their choices were then submitted to the Board of Directors for publication.

Their awards will be presented on Saturday, August 11 on the main stage during WAMBO.

The 30th Annual WAMBO event is taking place August 10, 11, and 12 in Wallaceburg.
