New scholarship for PHS students

Clifford Lloyd Cone, seen here beside one of his taxis in 1972, bequeathed more than $500,000 to the Western Quebec School Board to set up a scholarship for PHS students. The top boy and girl enrolled in post-secondary will each get half of the yearly interest from the endowment.
