Applications are now being accepted for the Don Blythe Scholarship. The scholarship was established in 2018 in memory of TSBC’s late chair.

Don Blythe

This scholarship is for $2,000 and is in the memory of Don Blythe for his contribution to Tire Stewardship BC and to the tire industry in general.

Rosemary Sutton, TSBC Executive Director, shares:

“On January 5, 2018, TSBC and the tire world lost an industry giant, Don Blythe.  Don was instrumental in setting up Tire Stewardship BC and held the position of Chairman of the Board since TSBC’s inception on January 01, 2007.  In honour of Don and as a thank you to his significant contribution to TSBC and others, the TSBC board has set up a scholarship in Don’s name in the amount of $2,000.  We know Don will be pleased with our decision to help further someone’s education.”

The scholarship will be known as the TSBC Don Blythe Scholarship.
