Fund Facts: Esther Claire Kathleen Clemo Scholarship FundKnown throughout the community as Miss Clemo, to her friends and neighbours, Claire. Miss Clemo was one of those teachers that inspired children. Because she never stopped caring, she kept in touch with many of her students and peers. Her personal archives, which can be found at the Mission District Historical Archives Centre, include hundreds of cards and letters that testify to the respect and admiration for Claire and all that she has done for our community. Born in Hong Kong in the 1930’s she traveled the world by the age of 19, immigrating to Canada in 1954 she landed in Mission to live with her aunt. Claire received her teaching degree in 1954 and taught over 3 decades before retiring. Recipient of the Queens Silver Jubilee Medal, Rotary Distinguished Service Award, Freeman of the City and a Pathfinder award, Claire never stopped giving. Her desire to ‘light the lam of learning and keep it lit’ stayed with her until the end. Claire started this fund in 2010, she also tied the fund to her will and Mission Community Foundation gratefully received the proceeds from the sale of her home upon her passing. Her scholarship is dedicated to students entering the fields of Education and Nursing. If you would like to help a student succeed, donate today!
