Three post-secondary school students from Lambton County were each awarded $1,000 scholarships from the proceeds of the 1991 International Plowing Match held in Lambton County.
Rewarded for their community involvement and scholastic ability were Kysa Willemsen, Ryall Willemsen from Plympton-Wyoming and Mallory Straatman from Alvinston.
Kysa is a graduate of St. Christopher’s and St. Patrick’s schools in Sarnia and is studying New Media Marketing and Business at Rochester Institute of Technology in New York State. Ryall, Kysa’s twin, is also a graduate of St. Christopher’s and St. Patrick’s schools in Sarnia and is studying business at Fanshawe College in London. Mallory is a graduate of LCCVI in Petrolia and is a second-year engineering student at Western University in London.
The 1991 IPM was held at Petrolia.
The Willemsen twins are the first set of twins to receive a scholarship from the IPM scholarship fund, say organizers.
