The Elver Olsen Memorial Scholarship

Elver Olsen was a long time member and past president of the Danish Canadian Club. He was very involved in the Danish community in Calgary, since he and his wife Grethe, immigrated here in 1957. Elver was also one of the founders of the Danish Businessmen's Association and a well-respected business owner with his company Scandia Electric Ltd. Giving back to his community was a big part of Elver's life, as well as, encouraging and supporting the next generation in their goals and education. Elver is lovingly remembered by his family, who are proud to donate this scholarship, in the amount of $2500, in his name and memory.
