Geltner Scholarship

History

Paul Geltner was a Russian Jewish Immigrant to Canada who later became a naturalized Canadian.  While he was very proud of his Jewish ancestry, he was equally proud of his Canadian Citizenship.  Mr. Geltner was a general merchant in Assiniboia throughout the depression and war years.  He retired to the West Coast in 1951 and has since passed away.  Mr. Geltner was an avid reader and a great historian.  One of his favourite topics was Canadian History, and he funded a continuing scholarship to stimulate interest in Canadian History.  The scholarship is awarded to the student with the highest mark in Social Studies/History 30.
