Background: These scholarships have been established by the Lockerby family in memory of their parents, Lloyd and Jean. Lloyd Lockerby passed away in February 2008 in Summerside, PEI. His death was preceded by that of his wife, Jean, in 1998. Lloyd and his wife Jean were partners in life, together raising three sons and operating a Shorthorn cattle operation and a third-generation fox farm in Hamilton, PEI. The high quality of foxes produced on the Lockerby ranch became recognized throughout PEI, Canada and even abroad, and Lloyd himself became known as one of the most knowledgeable fox ranchers in the industry. Lloyd graduated from Prince of Wales College in 1933, and from MacDonald College, a constituent of McGill University, in 1938, being the recipient that year of the Governor General's medal for top standing in his class. During the decades thereafter, he made an indelible mark in his regional community and in the broader community of Prince Edward Island. For 21 years he was an adult leader of the local 4-H Club. He was also a charter member of the Kensington and Area Chamber of Commerce and the Kensington C o-op Association, and a member of the original board of directors of Amalgamated Dairies Ltd. He was director of the P.E.I. Beef Producers, which later became the P.E.I. Cattlemen's Association. He served as director of the P.E.I. Fur Breeders Association, the Canadian National Fox Breeders Association, the board of trustees of Prince County Hospital, and he was appointed as a member of the board of governors at Prince of Wales College. In 1995 Lloyd was the recipient of the PEI Institute of Agrologists Awa rd for his significant contributions to the development and improvement of the agricultural industry in the Province and his involvement in organizations and his community. In 1997 he was inducted into the Atlantic Agricultural Hall of Fame and in 2005 was the recipient of the UPEI Distinguished Alumni Award. Lloyd was also a strong promoter of Island history and heritage. Jean was throughout her life a strong advocate of education at all levels. Having graduated from Prince of Wales College in 1930 with a first class teacher's licence, she taught in several Island schools, including Summerside High School. She had a keen interest and provided leadership in community affairs, particularly in the areas of heritage and culture. She was a life-member of the PEI Museum and Heritage Foundation and was involved in the PEI Rural Beautification Society. Lloyd and Jean were also dedicated to their church. Lloyd was a Member of Session (elder), a Member of the Board of Trustees and Secretary-Treasurer of the Board of Trustees of Princetown United Church continuously for nearly 50 years. He was also Secretary-Treasurer of the Board of Trustees, Malpeque People's Cemetery, from 1949 to 2000. In honour of Lloyd Lockerby's deep commitment to community service and the agricultural community of Prince Edward Island, and Jean Lockerby's desire to encourage, recognize and support students pursuing post-secondary education, and to contribute to the future well-being of the Island, these scholarships have been created in their memories.
