At the time, large animal agriculture was the foundation of the economy of Langley, and the vet was arguably one of the most important figures in the community. His obituary heralded him as "one of the district's best loved and widest known men". He was an excellent organiser, a clever man in his profession, a lover of fun, and the possessor of a magnetic personality. He was president of the Langley Board of Trade, active in community campaigns during World War II, a member of the Academy of Science and lecturer at UBC. His family continues to maintain the scholarship to encourage and support young people to give back to the community.

Ebonique Bate Memorial Scholarship

Indigenous Student Bursary

For the Love of Dance

From the time Ebonique Bate could walk, she never stopped dancing. Throughout her short life, it was dancing that gave her strength, happiness and harmony. Her extreme joy was transferred to all who saw her step through ever more complicated routines. She was a star!

To honour Ebonique's passion her family has set up a Memorial Scholarship to inspire and benefit a student who, like Ebonique, would want to pursue their dreams.

With this scholarship, the family hopes the beneficiaries can inspire happiness not only in themselves, but in others.
