    Abby Marks

    2020 FOR THE LOVE OF CURLING
    SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

    “Growing up, I had many curling role models. I watched them succeed and yet still give back to the curling communities that supported them. It inspired me to share my love of the game with young curlers and encourage them to chase their dreams.”

    Catherine Clifford

    2020 FOR THE LOVE OF CURLING
    SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

    “I love curling for the challenge and excitement it brings to my life. When I was younger it was a way to spend time with my family, and has since evolved into a way to develop friendships and be a part of a tight knit community.”

    Dylan Niepage

    2020 FOR THE LOVE OF CURLING
    SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

    “Many of the people who I consider to be my best friends - people who I can trust with nearly anything - I met through the curling community. Without them I’m not sure where I would be, but I am very grateful that I have had the chance to compete in the sport I love while surrounded by a very supportive community.”

    Gabriel Dyck

    2020 FOR THE LOVE OF CURLING
    SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

    “To be selected as a representative for this amazing sport is incredibly humbling. The pedigree of all past and current scholars is extraordinary and being among these people is an honour. I am incredibly grateful for the support of the curling community, which makes this all possible.”

    Jaedon Neuert

    2020 FOR THE LOVE OF CURLING
    SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

    “I love the challenges in curling. There are so many small components that one can work at perfecting to become a truly great player; out on the ice, challenging myself and enjoying the game, is when I’m happiest.”

    Jamie Scott

    2020 FOR THE LOVE OF CURLING
    SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

    “As a young curler, my role models in the sport were instrumental to the development of my goals and ambitions. It is now my privilege to be on the other side of the equation, giving back to the curling community through volunteering at local curling clubs, coaching junior programs, and introducing the sport to new curlers.”

    Lauren Ferguson

    2020 FOR THE LOVE OF CURLING
    SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

    “I love curling because it has become a part of me. At the rink, I have learned so much about who I am and who I want to be. I have met some incredible people who have helped shape the person I am today, and I would not be where I am without them. The culture we have created in Canadian curling is something truly special.”

    Lauren Rajala

    2020 FOR THE LOVE OF CURLING

    SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

    “This award means the world to me. Curling has been one of my priorities for as long as I can remember and has taught me how to balance all of the key things in my life: curling, family, school, and giving back - which happens to be all of the things this scholarship values.”
