Anna Pyles Memorial Scholarship

Anna Pyles was a young woman from Owen Sound, Ontario.  She was just 24 when she and her brother were driving on a beautiful summer afternoon and were suddenly broadsided at an intersection by a drunk driver.  This person had been convicted of impaired driving three previous times and was driving with a suspended license.  The date was June 8, 1997 and from that moment, the lives of her family and friends were forever affected.  

Thanks to the generous financial support of this Scholarship by the Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario, we are pleased to offer two scholarships to students who have shown exceptional dedication to OSAID and our mission to save lives.
