Bonnie and Glenn McDougall Education Bursary

Congratulations to James Carlin, Liam Comeau, Brydon Jewett and Ryan Nunes, winners of the Bonnie and Glenn McDougall Education Bursary for 2018.  Award was presented at the WSMHA annual meeting on April 25, 2018.



Four Stouffville hockey players are the inaugural recipients of a bursary program launched in the community this year.

James Carlin, Liam Comeau, Brydon Jewett and Ryan Nunes received financial awards from the Bonnie and Glenn McDougall Bursary fund during the annual general meeting of the Whitchurch-Stouffville Minor Hockey Association this spring.

All four are WSMHA graduates who will be attending university or college this year.

 

“All the applicants have mentored athletes and students at school, in the community, within the WSMHA and their hockey team,” Peter Harmsen of the bursary selection committee told the meeting.

“All the applicants juggled school, sports, time with family and friends, work and still found time to volunteer in the community.”

The bursary is an offshoot of Stouffville’s Kids First Fund Committee, which has assisted approximately 100 players whose families have had difficulty with the cost of minor hockey during the past six years.

“In 2012, the Kids Fund Committee was wondering how we could generate the financial resources to sustain the program,” Harmsen said. “Due to the tremendous generosity of the community, the available funds continued to grow.”

That generosity includes funds donated from a popular golf tournament run by former Stouffville Clippers Ian, Scott and Devon McDougall in memory of their parents – Bonnie and Glenn.

“Many of the golfers who play in the tournament year after year have participated in the hockey programs provided by the Whitchurch-Stouffville Minor Hockey Association,” said Harmsen. “For me, the biggest reward is to see the participants bring their family to the banquet at the end of the day of golf.”

Members of the McDougall family took part in the inaugural bursary presentation at the Stouffville Royal Canadian Legion.

 

The seventh annual Bonnie and Glenn McDougall Memorial Tournament will be played in July.
