Andrea Haugen (left) receives a plaque and flowers from Leann Kopytko at the annual Out of the Ashes lunch. Haugen and Paul Gully received bursaries from the program, which is administered by the Phoenix Centre, to help them with their education. The bursaries go to young people who have struggled with and overcome addition issues. Local businesses and other groups donate money for the program; this year, the bursaries were $3,500 each. Haugen is studying nursing and Gully is studying social work at Thompson Rivers University. Since Kopytko and her late-husband Ron started the program five years ago, 14 young people have received bursaries.
