JERRY AND GERRY ILCHYNA have touched countless lives at Dakota Collegiate and in our community. This is our opportunity to honour and thank them. Help us reach our goal to raise $100,000 over the next 6 months for the Jerry and Gerry Ilchyna Scholarship Fund. This would ensure that the scholarship lasts in perpetuity.
