The Josh Platzer Memorial Fund was set up in September 2000.

Josh was a student at Point Grey until grade 10. When Josh died, his parents determined that his name not be forgotten. by past, present or future Point Grey students. Every year at graduation, two deserving students receive a scholarship given in Josh’s name.

It is hoped that students will reflect on Josh’s life during this important milestone and in remembering Josh’s story, the importance of Sucide Prevention through Awareness will be acknowledged.
