Harris Family Fund
Bill Harris began his career as an accountant, but his love for his community and desire to make it better changed his direction. In the early 1970’s Bill became involved in local politics and he was Mission’s Mayor for three terms. He was awarded the honour of Freeman of Mission in 1982. In the late 1980’s Bill became one of the founding members of the Mission Community Foundation. He stated:
“Becoming a founder in the Mission Foundation was my greatest contribution to the community”.
We are grateful to Mr. Harris and our other founding fathers for recognizing the need to build the Mission Community Foundation and realizing that together we can make a difference in our community.
The Harris family loved nature and horses and that interest is reflected in this fund. Dedicated to graduating students who live in Mission, this fund will provide a Scholarship to students pursuing post-secondary studies in Horticulture or Veterinary Sciences.
