Gregory Bangay was born in Saint John and grew up in Quispamsis with his parents, Donald and Brenda, brother Paul, and two sisters, Dana and Lou-Anne. On December 30th, 2009, at the age of 31, his promising life was cut tragically short.
In honour of their son, Greg’s parents have established The Gregory J. Bangay Memorial Bursary Fund. Their wish is to contribute to the life and development of a young person as they pursue post-secondary studies. The award will support young mothers entering post-secondary education through the First Steps program. A deserving graduate will be selected annually for the award of $500.
“Greg had a strong sense of social justice and felt deeply for those marginalized by poverty or circumstance," says his mother. "We hope this bursary will give a young mom and her babe more options in life. Greg always wanted to make a difference and we want to be his vehicle for change."
