Arnold & Grace Rumbold
Arnold Rumbold, who has spent most of his career in Edmonton, is a retired Alberta Master Electrician with a Canadian Construction Association Gold Seal Certificate as Estimator, Electrical Contracting. He is enthusiastic that the trade was an interesting vocation, provided a good living, and gave many opportunities for advancement. Arnold believes that in retirement a person has an obligation to give back in some form to one’s community, so he chose to do so by establishing scholarships at NAIT.
Arnold and Grace Rumbold are pleased to provide the Arnold Rumbold Nanotechnology Bursary, valued at $1,000, to help support students in the Nanotechnology program; and the Arnold Rumbold Apprenticeship Award, valued at $1,300 for students in the Electrician Apprenticeship program. Arnold stipulates that these scholarships are to be awarded based on academic achievement in the first year of studies. He also believes that because women should be encouraged to become electricians, of all applicants who apply for the apprenticeship scholarship, preference will be given to women.
