Cassidy Grimm Memorial Bursary

Family honours daughter’s passion for education and helping others

1 comment

Cassidy Grimm’s life was tragically lost in a car accident in August 2023. She had just graduated with great distinction from the University of Regina with her Bachelor of Education last April and was planning on working as a substitute teacher with the Chinook School Division for the 2023/24 school year. Parents Dion and Tammy Grimm, the pastor couple at Kelstern Community Church in Hodgeville, SK along with her siblings, have set up a $500 bursary in Cassidy’s name for post-secondary education students in Saskatchewan.

Cassidy had many passions: penguins, soccer, Christmas traditions, reading and writing books and of course, being a teacher. She was especially excited about teaching grades 5, 6 and 7, and hoped to be able to teach this age group in a rural setting one day. Dion and Tammy remember her excitement for wanting to be a support and an encouraging presence to students in this formative time of life. She felt a strong personal connection to this age group.

Cassidy’s faith in God was deep and unwavering, and she lived out her faith through her hospitality and kind, giving nature. For example, after recently purchasing her own home, she set up a bedroom and bathroom for the female staff at West Bank Bible Camp to be able to come and recharge. “Because she enjoyed helping others, [the bursary] is a way to … carry on her dreams of helping people,” Tammy says.

Dion and Tammy say they are so thankful for the generous contributions people made in Cassidy’s name at her memorial. The family decided to create a bursary with this money for two reasons: they will be able to keep her with them each year as they read through applications, and it will allow her to continue to bless others. The Grimms hope to give out a bursary to a Saskatchewan education student every year that Cassidy would have been a teacher.

Please pray for the Grimms as they continue to grieve the loss of Cassidy: “There’s a huge void,” says Dion. “Pray for peace for our broken hearts. And that God’s love would fill that empty place that’s been left behind.”

Applications are open from February 1 to May 15 each year. For more information, please contact cassidygrimm-memorialbursary@sasktel.net.
