2017 Sport PEI Scholarship Winners

Another school calendar year has seen some of PEI’s finest athletes compete in regional, national, and international competitions.  As some of these athletes embark on their next chapter, Sport PEI has teamed up with three organizations, to provide $1000 Scholarships, to those attending a post-secondary education in the fall for the first time. Gemini Screen Print and Embroidery, Sports Centre Physiotherapy and Discount Car and Truck Rentals are all very proud to help relieve some of the financial burdens athletes experience when taking their game, and life, to the next level.

Sport PEI’s scholarships recognize excellence and achievement in sport, academics and community involvement.  They are excited to announce the following three recipients for 2017:

Ava Boutiler (Colonel Gray), Logan MacDougall (Three Oaks Senior High), and Hannah MacLellan (Charlottetown Rural).

Ava has been one of the finest athletes on PEI for the last number of years.  A national ice-hockey goalie prospect, Ava has had the opportunity to train and compete across North America and Europe.  Even more impressive, is Ava’s dedication to not only excelling on the ice, but in the classroom as she boasts a grade average of 94.2%.  She will be pursuing an undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of New Hampshire, but aspires to continue her education upon graduating in the field of Neurology.  Ava looks forward to balancing her education while playing division one women’s hockey, where she will without a doubt leave a lasting legacy. 

 

The University of Winnipeg will be adding an outstanding athlete to their Kinesiology program in the fall of 2017. Having been named Three Oaks athlete of the year in Grade 10 and 11, Logan is a well-rounded athlete having competed in five different sports for his high school.  Logan has won an Island championship in four of the five, where his work ethic, leadership and dedication proved to be a major catalyst in his teams’ success.  As Volleyball PEI’s U16 player of the year, Logan also recorded a first team all-star selection in AAA Basketball, while pitching three no hitter games on his summer baseball team.  His achievements don’t stop there, off the field of play, Logan is a respected member of Three Oak’s Leadership and Athletics councils.  Logan’s capacity to achieve great things as a varsity student athlete are second to none, and his abilities on and off the court will foster a bright future in any field he chooses.

 

One of PEI’s most outstanding individuals graduating from high school this year is Hannah MacLellan.  Hannah is one of twelve para-swimmers in Canada who have been selected to train on the NextGen training squad, with hopes of competing at the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo.  Having competed all over the world, Hannah still manages to allocate time to her studies and the community.  She missed 40 school days, in order to compete on a world stage, but managed to received honors status for her academic achievements at Charlottetown Rural.  Hannah will be attending Carleton University this fall, where she will be studying Political Science.  She has hopes of one day becoming a lawyer, in order to advocate for persons with a disability on a federal level.  Earlier this year, Hannah proved she didn’t need her law degree to start her dream, as she led an initiative that saw a Bill passed through the Island’s legislature that will rephrase any parking signs marked for someone with a disability.  Hannah has big dreams and a bright future, and will take her high level work ethic to lead any of her future endeavors.
