Sport PEI is pleased to award two student-athlete scholarships valued at $1000 each. These awards are in memory of Paul Trainor, and have been made possible by his family. Paul Trainor was a graduate of Colonel Gray High School, the University of Prince Edward Island, Saint Mary’s University and the Atlantic Police Academy at Holland College.

Paul loved serving as a police officer and was particularly proud of his security work with the United Nations Service in Sierra Leone and the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Through Paul’s rich and rewarding life, he developed many exceptional relationships with family, friends, and colleagues. Loyalty, integrity, honour and friendships were his values. Paul was recognized for significant volunteer work, a lifelong passion for soccer, and his newly acquired appreciation for speed skating. Paul left behind a legacy of dedication and commitment to the PEI soccer community.

The 2022 Paul Trainor Memorial Scholarship recipients are William Lyons (École La-Belle-Cloche) and Dara McCabe (Charlottetown Rural). Each student-athlete represents Paul Trainor’s values of loyalty, integrity, honour, friendship, and a love of sport.

Dara McCabe, a Charlottetown Rural High graduate, will be studying at Holland College this fall, while playing for the Holland College Women’s Basketball team. Dara will also be representing PEI at the 2022 Canada Games as a member of the Women’s Basketball team.

William Lyons, an École La-Belle-Cloche graduate, will be studying at Holland College this fall, while training to compete at the 2023 Canada Games hosted in PEI. William was a member of the Team PEI speed skating team in 2019 and will look to return to the games for a second time.

Congratulations to both of the recipients of the 2022 Paul Trainor Memorial Scholarships, we wish them the best on 2022 and beyond!
