The Wally Scott Bursary is presented in recognition of outstanding commitment to community service, athletics and academics. This bursary reflects the achievements of a young hockey player who is committed to his or her community, athletic ability and academic achievement. Recipients receive an award towards their post-secondary education.
Matthew Van Oirschot, a goalie from the Lambeth Minor Hockey Association, is this year’s bursary recipient. Matthew is the definition of a student athlete, participating on multiple school teams and is also involved in many school clubs. Along with balancing his own education, Matthew takes time to volunteer tutor other students. His scholastic success, as well as his charitable involvement, prove Matthew to be a worthy recipient of the Wally Scott Bursary towards a degree in biomedical engineering.
