Students take hockey scholarships by Storm
|By Lisa Gervais - Editor | May 25, 2017
A North College vet tech student and a University of Ottawa mechanical engineering student are the recipients of the Minden Pharmasave, Highland Storm Minor Hockey scholarships for 2017.
The award was created by Pharmasave and Highland Storm Minor Hockey to recognize and celebrate young students who are committed to self-betterment through post-secondary studies, and, who played hockey through the Highland Storm system.
Grace Faustino of Minden Pharmasave and Rich Smith of Highland Storm Minor Hockey said recipients Madison Allore and Ryan Hill are excellent role models to their peers and to young children and hockey players in the community. They said the students’ example makes Haliburton County better.
Faustino and Smith said Pharmasave shares these values in its Live Well mission statement.
“Your ability to balance your studies and sports encourages others to push themselves to be healthy and excel in life. Well done.”
Allore, who is studying to be a vet tech, and Ryan, who is working on a mechanical engineering degree, have each received $750. They said they would have no problem spending the money to further their education and have great memories of playing with the Storm system.
